Mining Data from Images

by Justin Flett

OpenCV is a widely-used data science and machine learning software library. This course will teach you the basics of Image Processing and Analysis using OpenCV with Python, including feature detection, image classification, and object detection.

What you'll learn

Data Science and Machine Learning are rapidly growing fields that use scientific methods and processes to extract useful knowledge and insights from data. In this course, Mining Data from Images, you will learn foundational knowledge of solving real-world data science problems. First, you will learn the basics of implementing image processing problems including regions of interest and image similarity. Next, you will discover how feature detection can be implemented using OpenCV with Python. Finally, you will explore how to understand and implement more complex topics such as image classification and object detection. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of image analysis and OpenCV needed to solve real-world data science and machine learning problems.
