The Complete Computer Vision Course with Python [2016]

Be part of the next generation of consumer and enterprise applications

What if you could learn and master some of the same techniques used in:

  • Self-driving cars
  • Microsoft Kinect
  • Google image search
  • Snapchat and Instagram filters

In this 7-hour course you will learn computer vision using Python 2.7 and develop skills in topics such as image filtering and processing, pattern recognition, machine learning and face detection.

These technologies are powering the next generation of consumer and enterprise applications.

From the Internet of Things, to advertising and gaming. We want you to get on board and be part of this revolution.

The course includes theory, lots of live coding and examples, and challenges for you to build your portfolio. Students can download the source code, projects and challenge solutions. Challenges include:

  • Receipt Segmenter – Find text in an image
  • Currency Counter – Count coins and dollar bills in an image
  • Multi-object Matching – Find Legend of Zelda rupees using a patter matching algorithm
  • Face Swap – App to swap the faces of two people

Complementing the application is the theory. We’ll discuss some of the mathematics and processes that happen under the hood to give you a better understanding of the concepts.

  • Colorspace conversions
  • Segmentation
  • Filters
  • Morphology
  • Edge Detection
  • Machine Learning
  • Face detection

At the end of the course, students will learn the fundamental computer vision techniques and be able to apply computer vision and image processing to their own images for a variety of cool tasks like building their own image filters, segmenting images, and even detecting faces in images!

How is machine learning covered in the course?

In this course, we will discuss some very elementary supervised machine learning topics such as support vector machines, decision trees, and Adaboost. These are just some elementary topics that lead to face detection using cascade classifiers, which use Adaboost and decision trees to determine if faces or eyes are present in an image. But to understand how cascade classifiers work, we first need to understand how Adaboost and decision trees work. However, both are techniques used in supervised learning. To understand supervised learning, we will use support vector machines.

I love the lectures, concise course objectives, and how they not only teach you enough to get started, but prepare you for the advanced stuff later down the road.



With Zenva, I started learning a more accurate way to approach problems and develop solutions. It’s full of interesting topics that I love to learn in conjunction with my work.



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.



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.


Our course instructors participate in elite developer programs and have been recognized for their demonstrated excellence in development and teaching.

That way, you can be confident that you’re learning the most up-to-date content from industry experts.
