Gary Bradski, President and CEO of the OpenCV Foundation, presents the "The OpenCV Open Source Computer Vision Library: What’s New and What’s Coming?" tutorial at the May 2016 Embedded Vision Summit.
OpenCV is an enormously popular open source computer vision library, with over 14 million downloads expanding recently to 200K downloads per month. Originally used mainly for research and prototyping, in recent years OpenCV has increasingly been used in deployed products on a wide range of platforms from cloud to mobile. The latest version, OpenCV 3.1, was just released. The previous version, 3.0, was a major overhaul, bringing OpenCV up to modern C++ standards and incorporating expanded support for 3D vision and augmented reality. The new 3.1 release introduces support for deep neural networks, as well as new and improved algorithms for important functions such as calibration, optical flow, image filtering, segmentation and feature detection.
In this talk, Gary Bradski, head of the OpenCV Foundation, provides an insider’s perspective on the new version of OpenCV and how developers can utilize it to maximum advantage for vision research, prototyping, and product development. Gary also offers a sneak peek into where OpenCV is headed next.
