In this course we’ll be building a facial recognition Artificial Intelligence (AI). The approach we’ll take is to train our AI using an existing dataset of faces created by the University of Yale, and then give it our own faces to see if it can recognize them.
The big topics that will be covered in this course center around the concept of Dimensionality Reduction. We’ll cover techniques such as Eigenfaces and Fisherfaces to make our AI detect faces. This will be complemented by a more accurate technique named Local Binary Patterns. We’ll cover the Yale Faces Database and how you can add additional faces to it.
Frameworks and tools covered: Python 2.7 (updated for Python 3.7), Anaconda 5.2, NumPy 1.15, OpenCV 3.4.2, OpenCV-Python 3.4.2, Pillow 5.3.0

I chose Zenva because of the large selection of topics and the fact that I can choose what courses I want to take whenever I want to take them. That level of freedom is unique to Zenva.
– Craig Bickford
The Unity courses at Zenva helped me achieve a level of comfort with game development that I didn’t think was possible. They give you the confidence to expand your skills, and were so easy to understand.
– Andrea Cardenas-Roeder
This course builds up on the concepts covered in our course Build Lorenzo - A Face Swapping AI.
