Face Detection on the iPhone

A session at OSCON 2010

Wednesday 21st July, 2010

2:30pm to 3:10pm (PST)

The OpenCV library is a collection of routines intended for real-time computer vision, released under the BSD License, free for both private and commercial use. The library has a number of different possible applications including object recognition and tracking.

This talk will walk attendees through the cross-compiling and building a static distribution of the library which you can link to your application and make use of from both the iPhone Simulator and the iPhone (and iPod touch) device itself.

We’ll then go on a discuss how to use the OpenCV library to build a simple application to perform face recognition on images taken directly using the iPhone’s own camera.

This presentation is an walks the attendees through cross-compiling and building the OpenCV library for the iPhone. It assumes some experience with programming the iPhone and with Objective-C, and experience with the command line build tools. Previous experience cross-compiling for code for multiple platforms is not required. It would suit experience iPhone developers.
