Scilab is a well-developed, free, and open-source high-level language for scientific data manipulation. Used for statistics, graphics and animation, simulation, signal processing, physics, optimization, and more, its central data structure is the matrix, simplifying many types of problems compared to alternatives such as FORTRAN and C derivatives. It is compatible with languages such as C, Java, and Python, making it suitable as for use as a supplement to existing systems.
In this instructor-led training, participants will learn the advantages of Scilab compared to alternatives like Matlab, the basics of the Scilab syntax as well as some advanced functions, and interface with other widely used languages, depending on demand. The course will conclude with a brief project focusing on image processing.
By the end of this training, participants will have a grasp of the basic functions and some advanced functions of Scilab, and have the resources to continue expanding their knowledge.
Data scientists and engineers, especially with interest in image processing and facial recognition
Format of the course
Part lecture, part discussion, exercises and intensive hands-on practice, with a final project
Marvin is an extensible, cross-platform, open-source image and video processing framework developed in Java. Developers can use Marvin to manipulate images, extract features from images for classification tasks, generate figures algorithmically, process video file datasets, and set up unit test automation.
Some of Marvin's video applications include filtering, augmented reality, object tracking and motion detection.
In this instructor-led, live course participants will learn the principles of image and video analysis and utilize the Marvin Framework and its image processing algorithms to construct their own application.
Format of the Course
The basic principles of image analysis, video analysis and the Marvin Framework are first introduced. Students are given project-based tasks which allow them to practice the concepts learned. By the end of the class, participants will have developed their own application using the Marvin Framework and libraries.
Pattern Matching is a technique used to locate specified patterns within an image. It can be used to determine the existence of specified characteristics within a captured image, for example the expected label on a defective product in a factory line or the specified dimensions of a component. It is different from "Pattern Recognition" (which recognizes general patterns based on larger collections of related samples) in that it specifically dictates what we are looking for, then tells us whether the expected pattern exists or not.
Format of the Course
This course introduces the approaches, technologies and algorithms used in the field of pattern matching as it applies to Machine Vision.
