This two day course is for people with intermediate knowledge of Max and for people with beginner to intermediate knowledge of Computer Vision who want to have an overview of the possibilities of using computers to see the world.
Starting with tracking colours, you’ll move onto the basic techniques to isolate the background, creating zones and use various softwares such as faceOSC and openTSPS to track face features or people movements in a space. On the second day, we'll look at the cv.jit package by Jean-Marc Pelletier to locate faces, see movement and track blobs using a combination of infrared lights and an infrared camera. Finally, we'll look at the kinect and how to use it with Max.
This course will be of particular interest to artists and designers who want to learn about programming and Computer Vision.
After completing the course you will be able to:
Understand and select appropriate tools in Computer Vision
Apply your learning and create your own application for your projects or work
After you have completed the introduction to Max course, you might be interested in further Design for Interaction courses at LCC.
