Overview of this book

Machine learning is becoming increasingly pervasive in the modern data-driven world. It is used extensively across many fields such as search engines, robotics, self-driving cars, and more. With this book, you will learn how to perform various machine learning tasks in different environments. We’ll start by exploring a range of real-life scenarios where machine learning can be used, and look at various building blocks. Throughout the book, you’ll use a wide variety of machine learning algorithms to solve real-world problems and use Python to implement these algorithms. You’ll discover how to deal with various types of data and explore the differences between machine learning paradigms such as supervised and unsupervised learning. We also cover a range of regression techniques, classification algorithms, predictive modeling, data visualization techniques, recommendation engines, and more with the help of real-world examples.

Computer Vision is a field that studies how to process, analyze, and understand the contents of visual data. In image content analysis, we use a lot of Computer Vision algorithms to build our understanding of the objects in the image. Computer Vision covers various aspects of image analysis, such as object recognition, shape analysis, pose estimation, 3D modeling, visual search, and so on. Humans are really good at identifying and recognizing things around them! The ultimate goal of Computer Vision is to accurately model the human vision system using computers.

Computer Vision consists of various levels of analysis. In low-level vision, we deal with pixel processing tasks, such as edge detection, morphological processing, and optical flow. In middle-level and high-level vision, we deal with things, such as object recognition, 3D modeling, motion analysis, and various other aspects of visual data. As we go higher, we tend to delve deeper into the conceptual aspects of our visual...
