"Computer Vision" refers to a broad collection of techniques that allow computers to make intelligent assertions about what's going on in digital images and video. Sometimes this means understanding the difference between an image of someone smiling and frowning, or something as simple as whether there is motion in front of a camera.
In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a brief history of computer vision and its relationship to media arts, but most of the time will be spent learning how to work with computer vision frameworks for JavaScript using p5.js: jsfeat for pixel manipulation, optical flow and object detection, clmtrackr for understanding faces, and proprietary APIs for image recognition.
Before taking this workshop, you should have at least one month of experience programming JavaScript, or one year with another text-based programming language. Before the workshop, attendees should have a text editor (such as Sublime Text) and Chrome installed.
