Pre-order now: Machine Learning for OpenCV

You might be wondering what I have been up to, since my blog has been quiet for a while. Don't worry, I'm still here!

Truth is, in the little spare time I seem to have these days, I've been working on a new book: Machine Learning for OpenCV, coming out later this year! You can pre-order it on the official website of Packt Publishing Ltd. or Amazon.

This will be an introductory book for folks who are already familiar with OpenCV, but now want to dive into the world of machine learning. The goal is to illustrate the fundamental machine learning concepts using practical, hands-on examples. As always, all source code will be available for free on GitHub.

The outline of the book is as follows:

  1. A Gentle Introduction to Machine Learning
  2. Working with Data Using OpenCV and Python
  3. First Steps in Supervised Learning
  4. Representing Data and Engineering Features
  5. Using Decision Trees to Make a Medical Diagnosis
  6. Detecting Pedestrians with Support Vector Machines
  7. Implementing a Spam Filter with Bayesian Learning
  8. Discovering Hidden Structures with Unsupervised Learning
  9. Using Deep Learning to Classify Handwritten Digits
  10. Combining Different Algorithms into an Ensemble
  11. Selecting the Right model with Hyper-Parameter Tuning
  12. Conclusion

Stay tuned for more details!
