Machine learning

Like humans learn from their day-to-day activities, a machine or computer can also learn from the data that they are getting. The scientific area that explores the construction and exploration of such algorithms is called machine learning. In this section, you will learn about machine learning-based object detection algorithms, or more specifically, face detection and eye detection algorithms.

Object detection algorithm

In 2001, Viola and Jones proposed an effective object detection method for using Haar feature-based cascade classifiers. As mentioned earlier, it is a machine learning-based object detection method. You will require lots of positive images (images with an object to detect) and negative images (images without the ...
