Where did SIFT and SURF go in OpenCV 3?

If you’ve had a chance to play around with OpenCV 3 (and do a lot of work with keypoint detectors and feature descriptors) you may have noticed that the SIFT and SURF implementations are no longer included in the OpenCV 3 library by default. Unfortunately, you probably learned this lesson the hard way by opening up a terminal, […]

Building a Pokedex in Python: Comparing Shape Descriptors with OpenCV (Step 6 of 6)

Here we are, the final step of building a real-life Pokedex in Python and OpenCV. This is where it all comes together. We’ll glue all our pieces together and put together an image search engine based on shape features. We explored what it takes to build a Pokedex using computer vision. Then we scraped the web […]
