Anshul Gupta (~anshul217)


We use a lot of devices in our daily routine which do image recognition to simplify our work, for example, accessing our phone, laptops, home security system using our retina scan or face. The talk will focus on the importance of image recognition and how python, matplotlib, numpy can be used to achieve image recognition. We will also do a demo of image recognition using python and helper libraries.
