From Books To Tutorial, Check Out The Top 7 Resources To Learn Computer Vision


Computer Vision is the interdisciplinary field of artificial intelligence and computer science, is basically the transition of data from either a still or a video camera into an accurate representation. Just like human vision, a computer vision also works on validating the computers to visualise, recognise and process images. Computer vision consists of three main components:



  • Image Acquisition: This is the first stage of the vision system. After the image is acquired, different kinds of processing tasks can be applied in order to achieve various vision tasks
  • Image Processing: Image Processing can be defined as the procedure of converting an image into a digital form and then apply some operations to it to get an enhanced image
  • Analysis Of Images: The process of extracting meaningful details from an image through digital image processing is known as image analysis

One of the most buzzing fields under artificial intelligence, computer vision has found plenty of use cases in the industry. There are many resources available to come up to speed with computer vision. In this article, we list down 5 best free resources that will come handy in learning computer vision. The list is in no particular order.
