Setting up OpenCV3 with Python on MacOS

OpenCV is an open source library with many useful functions for manipulating images and arrays. For my thesis, I had to research of Background Subtraction techniques, a category within Computer vision which forms the basis for detecting objects in video streams. In order to complete my research, I had to test the performance and complexity of various Background Subtraction techniques. My initial attempts involved using MATLAB to complete my research, but after learning about this useful API, I decided to test it out but it would have been way too time consuming to set OpenCV with more traditional programming languages like C so I decided to test it out with python… Continue reading “Setting up OpenCV3 with Python on MacOS”
