In this we will understand what image processing is and what is a neural network and how they are related and finally we will show you a small example of a project using image processing and neural networks.
Digital Image processing:
For basically understanding what image processing is? And how will it work? Digital image processing is the use of a digital computer to process digital image through an algorithm. The usage of image processing is widely increasing in the fields of military, bio technology, agriculture, environment etc.
The main branch of machine learning and artificial intelligence is Neural networks. The neural networks works in the same way the neurons work in human body. It is used to carry information. The basic need of neural network is to transfer information and store the information.
So with the use of neural network you can transfer the information through these. If you want more information about this
Use of neural networks in image processing:
For example if we see a car we can identify that it is a car but computer doesn’t so we are creating a virtual brain for computer using neural networks and by using that neural network you can help your computer to identify which one is a car. So for example we will show a small project based on neural networks.
In this above case there are so many different styles of writing the same number but our neural network should be trained in such a way that it should identify the number present in that image using image processing.
We will use this image and try to find out the number using image processing.
it has predicted correct. This is one of the example how neural networks are useful in image processing and this is a very small example now a days this neural networks are also used in self driving cars. Neural networks are the building blocks for Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence(A I). there is a huge vacancy in this area and in world there are very less number of AI experts. This area is having a huge demand now a days.
How and where to start:
As all of you I too have same doubt where to start and how to continue. I did a small research and asked some of my faculty and found about Andrew n g. so I have registered his course of machine learning in coursera and it Is the best course I have done so far. For all the beginners like me you should also give it a try and in that course you will be taught from basics.
you can also do the above project in that course in coursera course of Andrew n g.
