This was a request from /r/computervision. A reddit member was asking on how to count number of eggs on quite noisy image like you may see below. I’ve decided to write a simple algorithm that does the job and explain how it works.

In this post I’ll show you how you can train cascade classifier with OpenCV very quickly even if you have low-end hardware using virtual machine in the cloud.

A new version of KAZE and AKAZE features is a good candidate to become a part of OpenCV. So i decided to update KAZE port i made a while ago with a new version of these features and finally make a pull request to make it a part of OpenCV.

Perhaps, someone may find this post provocative or offensive. But in fact it’s not. Very often i receive offers from all kind of CXX (CEO, CTO, COO, C-bla-bla-bla) that can be formulated like “We want to build product X using OpenCV”. What’s wrong with you guys? OpenCV is not a panacea. In this post i’ll try to reveal this myth.

In this post i will show you how i implemented continuous integration and testing in my CloudCV project. Healthy unit tests and easy and continuous integration workflow is a must in any project goes beyound “Hello, world” application. Today software is a mixture of technologies of all kind. Therefore it can break literally everywhere. Each integration point is a place of risk. The CloudCV has a C++ backend that is using OpenCV library, it’s front-end is written in Node.js, they both using V8 JavaScript engine and libuv library to execute jobs asynchronously. Below you’ll find a solution how i implemented CI and unit testing for this project.
