Description

Welcome to the third course from my Computer Vision series - Python Optical Character Recognition And Object Detection.

Image Recognition, Object Detection, Object Recognition and also Optical Character Recognition (OCR) are among the most used applications of Computer Vision.

These techniques enable computers to recognize and classify either a whole image or multiple objects inside a single image, predicting the class of the objects with the percentage accuracy score. Using OCR, computers can also recognize and convert texts in images to machine readable format like text or a document.

Object Detection and Object Recognition, on the other hand, are widely used not only in many simple applications but also complex ones like self driving cars.

This course will be a quick starter for people who want to dive into Optical Character Recognition, Image Recognition and Object Detection using Python without having to deal with all the complexities and mathematics associated with the typical Deep Learning process.

For those of you who may not be coming from a Python-based programming background, there are lectures which will help you get the basic Python programming skill to follow the course.

The code, images, and libraries used are included inside this course. You are free to use them in your projects with no questions asked.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
