OpenCV essentials Review

OpenCV essentials provides a good overview of what sort of applications can be built with 2.4.9 release of OpenCV. There are a few references to what's coming in 3.0 release. According to the official website of OpenCV, 3.0 is to be released at the end of 2014. I like the way that the author has provided a fair description and code for detecting different 2-D feature descriptors in OpenCV. Cascade classification is also covered. The author goes on to describe what can be used as cascade classifiers. Latent SVM has also been included in this description. Tracking, background subtraction using OpenCV is also covered along with code samples.

Machine Learning is also provided in this book along with code samples. Code samples for classifiers such as KNN, Random Forest, SVM are provided.

I'm glad that steps to configure GPU (CUDA), a couple of GPU optimized OpenCV programs using NVIDIA CUDA are also provided.

If you are looking for a decent book for OpenCV with most recent stable release (2.4.9) covered, this is a good buy.

You can purchase it here.
