About this event
Computer vision is a cutting-edge technology that is widely deployed in the automotive and manufacturing industry in robots and cars. It is also a core application of Machine Learning. OpenCV is quite possibly the most ubiquitous library when it comes to computer vision being used in almost every application. It is available in many programming languages and operating systems. In this workshop, you will learn how to set up OpenCV with the PyCharm IDE. Then we will walk through the basic concepts of OpenCV and computer vision followed by working examples building up to a face tracker!
About this session:

Install the latest version of Python
The latest version of Python (3.10.8) should be installed on your computer. Please download it and install it from the following link: Download Python | Python.org
Install PyCharm Community Edition
We will be using the PyCharm IDE in the workshop. You are free to use any IDE that you are comfortable using as long as the virtual environment is configured with the right libraries. If you are not sure how to do this, we highly recommend using PyCharm. PyCharm Community Edition may be downloaded from the following link: PyCharm: the Python IDE for Professional Developers by JetBrains.
The latest version of Python combined with OpenCV has been raising a lot of installation issues for the team. To minimize the number of installation issues, we recommend installing Anaconda from here: Anaconda | Anaconda Distribution.
