Ever wonder how autonomous cars or drones use computers for autopilot? Did you know Python is very powerful when it comes to detecting objects in an image? Imagine what it can do with a video? There is a tremendous amount of data in the video. Garrett will show an example program that can detect an object in your own webcam.

There are a few steps in the process. First, you have to gather negative files you want to use as background images. Second, you will create positive images by superimposing the image you want to detect. Last you will train a cascade file for your Python program to detect. I'll show you the three functions and how to run the training model. Plus demonstrate the live version of image detection. I have so much to cover in such a limited amount of time. I'm sure you'll learn and enjoy the topic. We'll have the 30-minute demo and at the end of our session, we'll brainstorm and vote on new interesting topic ideas for upcoming presentations. The winning idea will get the innovator of the week.

Join the fun!
