Have you ever thought: “Yes, I would love to learn programing in Python, but it is too difficult and time consuming. It would take me months, maybe years, to master thousands and thousands of lines of code and understand complex mathematical equations. And the books that are written for these courses are either very hard to follow or very superficial. So, I give up!” There is no need to give up, this book brings the solution for all your difficulties.
The 100-page Computer Vision book is perfect for you!
Learn how to write a code while understanding the theory
After reading this book, you will gain a full understanding of complicated code and mathematical formulas in a very short time while understanding the theory behind Computer Vision.
Computer Vision: What it is and why it matters
Computer Vision represents one of the most fascinating subjects. Both engineering and research fields have to deal with it nowadays. In the last few years, there has been significant progress in computer vision achievements. Nowadays computers can recognize people easily. On the latest iPhone you can implement face recognition end fingerprint recognition options. All this is possible thanks do deep learning and computer vision research results. Moreover, computers nowadays can recognize many different objects with very high accuracy. For instance, you can just point your cell phone when taking a picture and it will mark where a face is. You can wave to your smartphone and in that way, the smartphone will recognize that you want to take a photo and it will be saved on your phone.
Step into the future of intelligent robots and self-driving cars
You have probably heard about recent advancement in the self driving car industry. With first experiments nowadays it is almost possible to have a fully autonomous drive. In addition, a famous Boston dynamics start-up company from the US has developed an already well known series of robots. Those robots are human like, like the one called Atlas, but they can also be dog and can be used for many interesting and practical activities. The latest achievements can be seen on YouTube videos of Atlas robot, and it shows that it performs many acrobatic exercises better than an average human. All this will result in a tremendous growth of artificial intelligence end computer vision applications. This will boost new branches of technology and will create jobs of the future. Therefore, whether it is for a hobby or for your professional career starting a new venture in the computer vision area, this book will be an important and beneficial step for you.
Are you intimidated with complex mathematical equations?
However, I do not want to sound overly naive and to preach that Computer Vision, Deep Learning and Image Processing are easy fields to grasp. To fully master them, they do require a lot of persistence, effort and programming, as well as a solid understanding of mathematics. Especially for beginners or amateurs in Computer Vision, it can be very difficult and demotivating. I have witnessed this first hand for several years while teaching Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Computer Vision to graduate students. Books that are written for these courses are not easy to follow. There is a lot of mathematics, equations and complex algorithms. Before you reach even your first hello world code snippet, you have to go over numerous obstacles of integrals and Fourier analysis. It can be intimidating.
