Study 10-15 hrs/week and complete in 3 months.
From computer graphics to social robotics to autonomous vehicles, computer vision is powering world-changing new technologies. In this program, you’ll write code to perform everything from facial recognition to scene-understanding to object tracking; by the end of this program, you’ll have a broad portfolio of applications that you’ve built!
Learn the essentials of computer vision, including image transformation, neural network architectures, and object recognition
Computer vision is a rapidly growing field that powers a variety of emerging technologies—from facial recognition to augmented reality to self-driving cars. Learn the latest deep learning architectures and image processing techniques today!
We collaborated with industry leaders from NVIDIA to Affectiva to build a program that showcases how computer vision is being applied on the front-lines of technology today.
You’ll learn how to program computer vision techniques in Python, and then use that knowledge to create your own applications! You’ll complete three major computer vision projects, and build a strong portfolio in the process.
Get personalized feedback on your computer vision projects from a team of technical reviewers. The invaluable reviews you receive mirror the experience of working on a team of engineers and mentors, and this feedback offers you unique and actionable insights as to how you should develop code!
