In this Python OpenCV course we are going to have Introduction to Python OpenCV and after that we will go through the installation process of the Open Computer Vision(OpenCV).
What is OpenCV ?
OpenCV is an open source library containing more than 500 optimized algorithms for image and video analysis, OpenCV was developed by intel, you can use OpenCV from displaying the feed of a webcam to teaching a robot to recognize real life objects, according to OpenCV website it is an open source computer vision and machine learning software library. OpenCV was built to provide a common infrastructure for computer vision applications and to accelerate the use of machine perception in the commercial products. Being a BSD-licensed product, OpenCV makes it easy for businesses to utilize and modify the code, also tt has C++, Python, Java and MATLAB interfaces and supports Windows, Linux, Android and Mac OS. OpenCV leans mostly towards real-time vision applications and takes advantage of MMX and SSE instructions when available.
The installation process is so simple and easy, you can use pip for the installation.
pip install opencv-python
