Let us begin this blog by first introducing to OpenCV library. OpenCV stands for Open Source Computer Vision and is a library of programming functions mainly aimed at real-time computer vision.

If you have seen cool videos of cameras detecting faces or objects, it is probably using OpenCV in its code.

I first came across this library when I saw a github post named “Hand Movement Using OpenCV” by Akshay Bahadur. I then started exploring this library. I first attempted to build same project as that of Akshay. I was successful in building Draw On Screen (nothing but hand movement detection on screen)

draw on screen opencvCode available on my github page.

From then on, I started exploring face detection algorithm. I underwent an excellent course at Udemy name Deep Learning and Computer Vision A-Z. I was able to successfully execute real time face, eyes and smile detection. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in exploring object detection algorithms. Also I would highly recommend people to follow Akshay on linkedin as his projects are highly motivating.

Code available on my github page.

Keep learning 🙂
