As with the growth of Artificial Intelligence and machine learning in the computing industry, we are experiencing and exploring the future one could have imagined. As a matter of fact, I found Open Computer Vision as my fascination to work on; It's a growing industry and soon enough it will be widely use across variety of applications.
What it does
I created a Face Attendance project that will use webcam to detect faces and record the attendance live in an excel sheet.
How we built it
My model is built in python code with different dependencies like c compiler and opencv etc. It identifies the person using a web footage and marks the attendance.
Challenges we ran into
Well the overall project was indeed challenging for me, because it was the first time I was working on a project which required all the my knowledge on Open Computer Vision, all the dependencies and extensions being used. Sometimes I got stuck for hours finding my run down errors, but to be honest it was intimidating. I enjoyed building it.
What we learned
While working on this project I learned a lot about facial recognition, different image recognition models and went through some of the exciting dependencies that makes coding much fun and easier.
What's next for Face Attendance
I am thinking about making this program run on any entry instead of using a set data.
