This guide is intended for computer vision engineers who are learning the basics of OpenCV. The book provides complete projects from ideation to running code, focusing on current hot topics in computer vision like face recognition, landmark detection and pose estimation and number recognition with deep convolutional networks.

The mathematical formulations are kept to a solid but minimal level.

- Learn about the new features that help unlock the full potential of OpenCV 4
- Build face detection applications with a cascade classifier using face landmarks
- Create an optical character recognition (OCR) model using deep learning and convolutional neural networks

This book is intended for C++ programmers with a working knowledge of OpenCV. Because we move through the book very fast, you should be familiar with some of the more theoretical and mathematical topics.
