Book Description

This book is a hands-on introduction to computer vision using Python.

The idea behind this book is to give an easily accessible entry point to hands-on computer vision with enough understanding of the underlying theory and algorithms to be a foundation for students, researchers and enthusiasts. The Python programming language, the language choice of this book, comes with many freely available powerful modules for handling images, mathematical computing and data mining.

  • Computer Vision (Dana H. Ballard, et al)

    This book is the construction of explicit, meaningful descriptions of physical objects from images. Image understanding is very different from image processing, which studies image-to-image transformations, not explicit description building.
