Join Barron Stone for an in-depth discussion in this video Image Analysis, part of Code Clinic: Python (2014).
Hi, and welcome to Code Clinic.…My name is Barron Stone.…Code Clinic is a monthly course where a unique problem…is introduced to a collection of Lynda.com authors.…In response, each author will create a solution…using their programming language of choice.…You can learn several things from Code Clinic:…Different approaches to solving a problem,…the pros and cons of different languages,…and some tips and tricks to incorporate…into your own coding practices.…In this code clinic we'll work on…a problem centered around image analysis.…In one sense, this is simply data analysis.…
Images are really nothing more than…specialized and well-defined sets of data.…An image consists of pixels, and pixels consist…of data representing the color of the pixel,…and in some cases the pixel's transparency.…Pixels are arranged in rows and columns, and when…they're assembled correctly they represent an image.…Our brains are very good at recognizing…patterns, but computers are not.…Think about CAPTCHA security devices, those are the…
Barron introduce challenges and provides an overview of his solutions in Python. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
Visit other courses in the series to see how to solve the exact same challenges in languages like C#, C++, Java, PHP, and Ruby.
