Advanced Image Processing – Build a Blackjack Counter [2017]

This course has been archived and is no longer supported.  For our latest courses on computer vision, consider trying our evergreen curriculums with a 1-Year Unlimited Access Package.

In this course we’ll build an app that can detect and recognize playing cards using Python and OpenCV. This app will detect that there is a playing card in an image, it grab all the cards it finds and reorients them.

There are two main concepts that will be covered in this course. One of them is thresholding, which is a technique of image segmentation. The second one is  contour detection.

Learning goals:

  • Thresholding:
    • Binary thresholding
    • Inverted binary thresholding
  • Contour detection:
    • Curve approximation
    • Contour hierarchy
    • Polygon approximation
