Course Description

In this 2-day course, you will be introduced to the fundamental concepts of Artificial Intelligence (“AI”), Computer Vision, and Open Source models that power today’s advanced image recognition systems. This will be followed by a hands-on practical session in which learners will be provided with the toolkit and guided for learning how to use Python and Open Computer Vision Library to analyse images and video data. This course will inform you on the basics of image transformation, feature extraction. From there we will explore image recognition, detection and object tracking.

Learners will utilise the OpenCV library to open, work with and manipulate image basics. You will learn how to process images and apply a variety of effects, thresholds, gradients, through hands on activities. This will progress onto how to detect and track objects.

Learning Outcome

■ Explain image/video transformation concepts

■ Apply image processing concepts

■ Evaluate Cloud vs Edge based computer vision systems

■ Explain and Implement Feature Extraction

■ Utilise Machine Learning based computer vision and implement video analytic algorithms using Open CV
