Logistic Regression for Image Classification Using OpenCV

In a previous tutorial, we explored logistic regression as a simple but popular machine learning algorithm for binary classification implemented in the OpenCV library. So far, we have seen how logistic regression may be applied to a custom two-class dataset we have generated ourselves.  In this tutorial, you will learn how the standard logistic regression […]

Logistic Regression in OpenCV

Logistic regression is a simple but popular machine learning algorithm for binary classification that uses the logistic, or sigmoid, function at its core. It also comes implemented in the OpenCV library. In this tutorial, you will learn how to apply OpenCV’s logistic regression algorithm, starting with a custom two-class dataset that we will generate ourselves. […]

Running a Neural Network Model in OpenCV

Many machine learning models have been developed, each with strengths and weaknesses. This catalog is not complete without neural network models. In OpenCV, you can use a neural network model developed using another framework. In this post, you will learn about the workflow of applying a neural network in OpenCV. Specifically, you will learn: What […]

Training a Haar Cascade Object Detector in OpenCV

Using a Haar cascade classifier in OpenCV is simple. You just need to provide the trained model in an XML file to create the classifier. Training one from scratch, however, is not so straightforward. In this tutorial, you will see how the training should be like. In particular, you will learn: What are the tools […]

Using Haar Cascade for Object Detection

Before the deep learning revolution redefined computer vision, Haar features and Haar cascades were the tools you must not ignore for object detection. Even today, they are very useful object detectors because they are lightweight. In this post, you will learn about the Haar cascade and how it can detect objects. After completing this post, […]
