About the Course

In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will learn how to do Computer Vision Object Detection from Images and Videos. At the end of the project, you'll have learned how to detect faces, eyes and a combination of them both from images, how to detect people walking and cars moving from videos and finally how to detect a car's plate. This course runs on Coursera's hands-on project platform called Rhyme. On Rhyme, you do projects in a hands-on manner in your browser. You will get instant access to pre-configured cloud desktops containing all of the software and data you need for the project. Everything is already set up directly in your Internet browser so you can just focus on learning. For this project, you’ll get instant access to a cloud desktop with (e.g. Python, Jupyter, and Tensorflow) pre-installed. Prerequisites: In order to be successful in this project, you should have a fundamental knowledge of Python and OpenCV. Notes: - You will be able to access the cloud desktop 5 times. However, you will be able to access instructions videos as many times as you want. - This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions....

Excellent project for beginners in this domain. Clear explanation and repeated practice over various scenarios made it easier to pick up the codes for object detection.

The course was pretty amazing, especially the tutor was nice and I could understand everything he explained and I am in love with Rhyme, it makes learning so easy.

Good for beginers. You need to complete atleast the image basics with open cv course before doing this for a easy understanding(Recommended Images basics and Video Basics with openCV). We will learn to detect and draw a rectangle over identified faces, bodies,cars,car plates etc.. Would be great if the classfier part is also explained

Accent was hard to understand for me. I was expected that the inside of the classifier/detector will discuss but got frustrated. This only taught how to load images and and use a classifier!!

My session crashed midway and I couldn't reconnect.

The guide says you can download your files, but I couldn't find a way to do that with Rhyme.

Meh! Should be enough if you already have experience with other techs, say matlab, and just wanna "translate" to OpenCV.

Good explanation

This project is good for an initial understanding, but I would request to increase access to the online hardware systems and at the same time provide better pre requisites and also the official documents/ code to get downloaded on the system.

Not impressive

By emanuele g

it is really bad, it is just a video copy pasting code lines without giving any information / input about the libraries and how they works. The instructor does not give any value added, he does not explain anything and the detections he is running are even not working (a lot of missed persons / cars / faces and false positives) and he does not even explain how to fix. All notebooks consists of the same 4-5 OpenCV APIs, so it is really a waste of time and money.

Really bad

Total waste of time. Instructor is using prepared files as classifiers and he didn't even bother to explain how they really work. And they work bad (detect other objects on images), but he didn't care. Course is about writing some short Python snippets, not CV or Object Detection. Also instructor speaks English very poorly.

It will be difficult for a non english listener to understand the pronunciation of the teacher, also, there is no way to download the content so it can be used for further exploration and learning.

Error in face classifier code of face and eyes detection section, no documents sent by Rhyme that are required, even i could not download it.

There were no method explanations provided and it was just a plain see and write code exercise. No insight as to how it works was provided.

The link added to this course is that of "Computer Vision: Video Basics with OpenCV and Python", no point in enrolling for this course.

Repetitive. Does not teach how to create the xml recognition files. Many stackoverflow answers contain for content.

The instructor didn't put any content
