Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Image analysis, part of Code Clinic: Swift (2015).
- Welcome to problem number two in Code Clinic for Swift.…I'm Simon Allardice.…Code Clinic is the course where each month…a programming challenge is given to a group…of lynda.com developer authors and we each solve…that problem using our programming language of choice.…This gives you a chance to see different ways…to approach a problem, the benefits of some…languages and technologies over others,…a chance to dive into app development…and software architecture and a few real-world…tips and tricks to bring into your day-to-day coding.…This time we have a problem of computer image analysis.…An image shown on a device screen…consists of pixels, picture elements.…
Pixels contain data representing the color of the pixel…and in many cases, transparency as well.…These pixels are arranged in rows and columns,…and when assembled correctly,…we'll interpret them as an image.…Now our brains are good at recognizing…patterns, shapes, colors, faces,…but computers are not.…Think about CAPTCHA security devices,…those puzzles you sometimes see when logging into a website.…
Simon introduces challenges and then provides an overview of his solutions in Swift. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
