About this course

Computer vision (CV) is a set of techniques that are used to help machines to “see” and comprehend what is contained in digital imagery such as photos and videos. It has varied applications such as in medical imaging, motion capture, surveillance, automating retail checkouts, and in optical character recognition. This course starts with the basic steps of digitizing images, sampling them and compressing them (quantization). It then covers various methods to work with images including classification, identification, detection, etc.

Skills covered

  • check Working with Images
  • check Convolution
  • check Pooling
  • check Transfer learning
  • check Convolutional Neural Networks
