Neighborhood Friday #2: Rerun, Dr. Andrew Ng & Extra

Blissful Friday, OpenCV group! Neighborhood Friday is our showcase of fascinating and enjoyable tasks as submitted by you! For those who’ve seen or made a mission which makes use of OpenCV you need to see on Neighborhood Friday, ship it to us by filling out the submission kind. In the present day we’ll be exhibiting a brand new tutorial on the right way to use Rerun with OpenCV, a glance again at OpenCV’s twentieth anniversary, our webinar about ROSCon 2023, and how one can assist maintain OpenCV free by supporting our IndieGoGo marketing campaign.

Use OpenCV With Rerun, An Superior Information Visualizer

Our pals at Rerun have launched model 0.11 of their thrilling information visualization instrument. Among the many adjustments are a brand new “Seen Time Vary” characteristic, and a npm package deal of their glorious internet viewer. You might bear in mind Rerun have been our visitors on OpenCV Reside episode 94, which you’ll be able to watch on our YouTube channel.

Most significantly for us, together with the brand new launch they’ve printed a minimal C++ instance of utilizing Rerun along with OpenCV (C++ model) and Eigen. See their GitHub for a full instance

Dr. Andrew Ng on OpenCV

As a part of OpenCV’s twentieth anniversary, OpenCV group member and AI legend Dr. Andrew Ng took a couple of moments to speak concerning the significance of open supply in science and expertise:

“Within the software program world, all of us stand on the shoulders of giants and it’s by sharing our work and constructing on one another’s work that collectively as a group we are able to construct these wonderful software program merchandise. I feel OpenCV has been one essential constructing block constructed by giants that I feel all of us ought to really feel privileged to have the ability to stand on their shoulders.”

You’ll be able to watch our full interview with Dr. Ng on the official OpenCV YouTube channel.

Pledge To Assist OpenCV

Right here’s the quick model of superior stuff coming to OpenCV in model 5: A brand new Deep Neural Community (DNN) module, Accelerated picture processing, Truetype font assist with full Unicode assist, Improved assist for fisheye digital camera calibration and multi-camera assist, higher assist for depth cameras, new packages, higher optimization for AMD CPUs and GPUs, a lot wanted code refactoring and new tutorials for the brand new model.

Now we have simply 16 days left in our marketing campaign to maintain OpenCV free for everybody and now we have raised simply $48,796 towards our $500,000 aim. We all know $500k shouldn’t be a small factor to ask- however we’re asking as a result of it’s what we have to not simply pay the core builders who will produce OpenCV 5 however to make sure that we are able to do it the Open Supply free-access method as we at all times have.
