No more reinventing the wheel.Disseminate vision knowledge by providing a common infrastructure that developers could build on, so that code would be more readily readable and transferable.Advance vision-based commercial applications by making portable, performance-optimized code available for free—with a license that did not require to be open or free themselves. The first alpha version of OpenCV was released to the public at the IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition in 2000, and five betas were released between 2001 and 2005. The first 1.0 version was released in 2006.

How JavaScript & HTML5 Are Remaking the Web The Future Web Series is supported by Elsevier's SciVerse Application Marketplace and Developer Network. The SciVerse applications platform enables developers to build apps based on trusted scientific content. Learn more. HTML5 is no longer just a buzz word. It — along with JavaScript and CSS3 — is quickly helping reshape perceptions of what a web browser and web standards can achieve.

Devs Hack iPhone API for True Augmented Reality An international team of computer scientists has created software that lets anyone perform on-the-fly analysis of live streaming video on the iPhone. Used alongside existing methods of displaying data on top of the camera's view, this new functionality signals a fundamental change in the kinds of Augmented Reality (AR) that iPhone developers can create. Existing AR apps, like Yelp, Layar, Wikitude and others display data on top of a camera's view but don't actually analyze what the camera sees. This new development changes that. The iPhone has a private API for analysis of live-streaming video but developers' requests that it be made accessible haven't been granted by Apple.

Integrating Vision Toolkit The Integrating Vision Toolkit (IVT) is a powerful and fast C++ computer vision library with an easy-to-use object-oriented architecture. It offers its own multi-platform GUI toolkit. Availability[edit] The library is available as free software under a 3-clause BSD license. It is written in pure ANSI C++ and compiles using any available C++ compiler (e.g. any Visual Studio, any gcc, TI Code Composer). How to Display Wordpress Sidebar on Other (Non WP) Sites While working on my latest project, DevGrow Discussions, I came across the need to embed my entire WordPress sidebar on a non-WordPress site – specifically a bbPress forum. Since I make use of various widgets to display popular posts and other dynamic content, simply copying and pasting the HTML would not suffice. In the end, there are really only two ways of going about this: Include your wp-load.php file in your application and in effect load the entirety of WordPress to get access to the plugin functionsUse simple caching to store the sidebar in HTML format and include it in any other application, then rebuild it as necessary when new content is published If it’s not obvious enough, the first option is very costly in terms of database queries and can significantly slow your site down. The second option requires a little effort in implementation but performance wise there is no competition.

Serving Raspberry Pi with Flask - Matt Richardson, Creative Technologist The following is an adapted excerpt from Getting Started with Raspberry Pi. I especially like this section of the book because it shows off one of the strengths of the Pi: its ability to combine modern web frameworks with hardware and electronics. Not only can you use the Raspberry Pi to get data from servers via the internet, but your Pi can also act as a server itself. Adobe Flash Tutorials – Best of - Smashing Magazine Although usability evangelists often consider Flash to be a usability nightmare, used properly, Flash can provide users with a rich and interactive interface which would be impossible otherwise. Today Flash is the de-facto standard for interactive elements on the Web as most users install Flash plug-in by default. And in fact, there are many paths creative designers can take to create a more interactive and user-friendly interface. Searching for ‘flash tutorials’ via Google & Co. won’t provide you with the results you expect.

Template Matching Goal In this tutorial you will learn how to: Use the OpenCV function matchTemplate to search for matches between an image patch and an input imageUse the OpenCV function minMaxLoc to find the maximum and minimum values (as well as their positions) in a given array. Theory

Making a Custom YouTube Video Player With YouTube’s APIs Martin Angelov Video presentations are a great addition to any product page. With a presentation you can showcase your product’s features without making the visitor read through long paragraphs of text. But apart from producing the video, you still need to manually convert it and find (or code) some sort of flash player that will display it on your site. The other possible path is that you upload it to a video sharing site such as youtube, but you are going to have a rough time trying to incorporate the player into your design.
