Face Processing with Computer Vision a talk by Gabriel Bianconi

Saturday, 15 June, 11:10 in Ballroom

Ever wonder how Facebook’s facial recognition or Snapchat’s filters work?

Faces are a fundamental piece of photography, and building applications around them have never been easier with open-source libraries and pre-trained models.

In this talk, I’ll help you understand some of the computer vision and machine learning techniques behind these applications. Then, we’ll use this knowledge to develop our own prototypes to tackle tasks such as face detection (e.g. digital cameras), recognition (e.g. Facebook Photos), classification (e.g. identifying emotions), manipulation (e.g. Snapchat filters), and more.

This talk is suitable for both beginner and advanced Pythonistas.
