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 […]

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 […]

Building a Pokedex in Python: Getting Started (Step 1 of 6)

So you’re telling me that we are going to build a Pokedex in Python that can visually recognize Pokemon? Just like in the TV show? – Ash Ketchum Yes, Ash. That’s exactly what I’m telling you. The next series of blog posts will be dedicated to building a Pokedex that can visually recognize Pokemon from the […]

Building an Image Search Engine: Indexing Your Dataset (Step 2 of 4)

Last Wednesday’s blog post reviewed the first step of building an image search engine: Defining Your Image Descriptor. We then examined the three aspects of an image that can be easily described: Color: Image descriptors that characterize the color of an image seek to model the distribution of the pixel intensities in each channel of the […]
