What previous students have said:

"I'm amazed at the possibilities. Very educational, learning more than what I ever thought was possible. Now, being able to actually use it in a practical purpose is intriguing... much more to learn & apply"

"Extremely well taught and informative Computer Vision course! I've trawled the web looking for Opencv python tutorials resources but this course was by far the best amalgamation of relevant lessons and projects. Loved some of the projects and had lots of fun tinkering them."

"Awesome instructor and course. The explanations are really easy to understand and the materials are very easy to follow. Definitely a really good introduction to image processing."

"I am extremely impressed by this course!! I think this is by far the best Computer Vision course on Udemy. I'm a college student who had previously taken a Computer Vision course in undergrad. This 6.5 hour course blows away my college class by miles!!"

"Rajeev did a great job on this course. I had no idea how computer vision worked and now have a good foundation of concepts and knowledge of practical applications. Rajeev is clear and concise which helps make a complicated subject easy to comprehend for anyone wanting to start building applications."

Why LearnComputer Vision in Python using OpenCV?

Computer vision applications and technology are exploding right now! With several apps and industries making amazing use of the technology, from billion-dollar apps such as Pokémon GO, Snapchat and up and coming apps like MSQRD and PRISMA.

Even Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, and Tesla are all heavily utilizing computer vision for face & object recognition, image searching and especially in Self-Driving Cars!

As a result, the demand for computer vision expertise is growing exponentially!

However, learning computer vision is hard! Existing online tutorials, textbooks, and free MOOCs are often outdated, using older incompatible libraries or are too theoretical, making it difficult to understand.

This was my problem when learning Computer Vision and it became incredibly frustrating. Even simply running example code I found online proved difficult as libraries and functions were often outdated.

I created this course to teach you all the key concepts without the heavy mathematical theory while using the most up to date methods.

Itake a very practical approach, using more than50 Code Examples.

At the end of the course, you will be able to build 12Awesome Computer VisionApps using OpenCV in Python.

I use OpenCV which is the most well supported open-source computer vision library that exists today! Using it in Python is just fantastic as Python allows us to focus on the problem at hand without being bogged down by complex code.

If you're an academic or college student I still point you in the right direction if you wish to learn more by linking the research papers of techniques we use.

So if you want to get an excellent foundation in Computer Vision, look no further.

This is the course for you!

In this course, you will discover the power of OpenCV in Python, and obtain skills to dramatically increase your career prospects as a Computer Vision developer.

You get 3+Hours of DeepLearning in ComputerVision using Keras, which includes:

  • A free VirtualMachine with all Deep Learning Python Libraries such as Keras and TensorFlow pre-installed

  • Detailed Explanations on NeuralNetworks and Convolutional Neural Networks

  • Understand howKeras works and how to use and create image datasets

  • Build a Handwritten Digit Classifier

  • Build a Multi-Image Classifier

  • Build aCats vs Dogs Classifier

  • Understand how to boost CNNperformance using Data Augmentation

  • Extract and Classify Credit Card Numbers

As for Updates and support:

I will be continuously adding updates, fixes, and new amazing projects every month!

I will be active daily in the 'questions and answers' area of the course, so you are never on your own.
