A workshop on “Image Processing using OpenCV” was conducted (20th October, 2019) at the University by the Coders Club of School of Engineering, with the aim to provide students with hands on experience on various image processing techniques. The workshop was conducted by Nisha (B.Tech CSE 3rd Year student of the university) wherein students were able to grasp the fundamentals of different numerical techniques that are used in processing of digital images.
The orator started the workshop introducing the audience about the OpenCV library and how it is a fast and effective tool for performing various operations on images of different types. Color models used to construct images were explained and operations like transformations, convolutions, etc. were detailed. Efforts were made to discuss histograms, different types of gradients and the basics of edge detection. With the help of the live tutorials, students were able to perform image segmentation on their own images using thresholding techniques. A glimpse about object detection using powerful pre-trained networks was also shared at the near end of the workshop.
