About

Computer vision solves imaging problems that cannot be solved using ordinary systems and sensors. OpenCV is one of the most popular Computer Vision libraries and helps you write faster code.

This course begins with the basics of loading and working with images. You will detect colored objects in your images easily. You will also use tools to build and apply filters in your photos and track objects in a video.

By the end of the course, you will have a firm grasp of Computer Vision techniques using OpenCV libraries. This course will be your gateway to the world of data science.

He worked for STMicroelectronics Inc on signal processing and Machine learning He has experience in working with several startup companies on different domains, including signal processing.

He has recently completed projects on Supervised and Unsupervised Learning. Some of the projects, including a recommendation system, used collaborative filtering algorithms to benefit more organizations in terms of product recommendations and personalize things for users. Being a night owl, he performs a lot of bug fixing and module development in the late evening. He actively solves Kaggle problems and participating in Data Science Hackathons and Hacker rank competitions.
