1. Introduction to Face Detection

Face detection is a computer technology that identifies human faces in still or motion images.

  • In this tutorial, we are going to learn Face Detection using OpenCV(Python). Face Detection is a trending technology almost used in every area these days, from security, research, analysis, recognition, smart devices, automation, and many more things.
  • We will use the OpenCV module, that is a Computer Vision Library along with the python language to detect Human faces.
  • We are going to use our PC Webcam to get the video feed.
  • It will make you understand the basic concepts of Face Recognition from where you can go on for further learning.
  • So let’s start!

Face detection using open cv

Definition - 

Face detection is a computing technology term, that is used when the software is used to determine the existence, location, and size of a human face in a particular photo. The software is clever enough to detect the facial features, while at the same time ignoring other objects like trees, buildings, and bodies.
