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 […]

The Best Python Books of 2014

We’re not even halfway through 2014 yet, but there have been some really amazing Python books released this year that have not been getting much attention. Some of these books are related to computer vision, some to machine learning and statistical analysis, and others to parallel computing. While not all of these books are directly related […]

Building a Pokedex in Python: OpenCV and Perspective Warping (Step 5 of 6)

We’re getting closer to finishing up our real-life Pokedex! In my previous blog post, I showed you how to find a Game Boy screen in an image using Python and OpenCV. This post will show you how to apply warping transformations to obtain a “birds-eye-view” of the Game Boy screen. From there, we will be […]

Building a Pokedex in Python: Indexing our Sprites using Shape Descriptors (Step 3 of 6)

So, how is our Pokedex going to “know” what Pokemon is in an image? How are we going to describe each Pokemon? Are we going to characterize the color of the Pokemon? The texture? Or the shape? Well, do you remember playing Who’s that Pokemon as a kid? You were able to identify the Pokemon […]

I’m Writing a Book: “Practical Python and OpenCV: An Introductory, Example Driven Guide to Image Processing and Computer Vision”

I’ve been throwing around the idea of writing a book for the past few months, but I wasn’t sure on what the exact focus was going to be. I’ve given it a ton of thought, worked out the specifics, and spoke with a lot of developers, programmers, and researchers like yourselves. All of this work […]
