This workshop will provide training on OpenCV and image processing using Python. OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions mainly aimed at real-time computer vision. The library is cross-platform and free for use under the open-source BSD license. The Raspberry Pi is a tiny and affordable computer that students can use to learn programming through fun, practical projects. Pi will be used with Python, which is a programming language that lets the user work more quickly and integrate their systems more effectively. Students can learn to use Python and see almost immediate gains in productivity and lower maintenance costs.
To teach the basics of image processing, face detection and face recognition. The participants would be able to recognise objects, faces and identify faces with names. In the workshop, participants will be familiarised with Geometric Transformations of Images, Detecting Edges and applying image filters, cartooning an image, detecting and tracking different body parts, extracting features from an image, detecting shapes, object tracking and recognition.
To keep the crowd interactive and active, the workshop would have tasks which would have marks associated with them. All the participants would be given certificate of participation. The best performing team would be chosen based on the highest rank and awarded with 'Certificate of Merit'. The certificates would be issued by PrismCode Info Solutions Pvt. Ltd. which can be validated internationally.
