An introduction to Computer Vision in .NET

Session en anglais - Intermédiaire

Computer Vision is revolutionizing the world around us. It's ubiquitous and yet the entry points are opaque and can be a bit daunting to understand. This talk will break down these barriers as we cover some of the basics of Computer Vision in .NET - convolution, edge detection, facial detection, feature tracking, and some basic augmented reality using OpenCV.

Hey .NET - what kind of dog is that?

ML.NET is new on the scene, but ultra-powerful machine learning technology built natively into the .NET core stack. Gone are the days of shoehorning that C++ code our pristine .NET apps to do anything beyond rudimentary induction.
In this talk we'll be exploring how to use ML.NET + TensorFlow + Inception to build a powerful image classifier and learner, then we're going to learn how to easily drive that classifier with various social media apps.
