Teaching Robots to See


As we start to use javascript to control quadrocopters and robots, it becomes important that they can see with images from cameras onboard. In this talk we'll take a step back and look at the field of computer vision; look at some of the exciting practical problems that can be solved with CV techniques, and look at how we can do this with my node opencv bindings. We'll take a quick look at how you can write native bindings for a library such as opencv. Then we'll do a deep dive and look at what opencv is actually doing when you do face detection.
