EdX is an online learning platform trusted by over 12 million users offering the Computer Vision and Image Analysis Certificate in collaboration with MicrosoftX. A deep dive into Computer Vision, Image Analysis and Semantic Segmentation using the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit.

About

The Computer Vision and Image Analysis Certificate from EdX is offered in partnership with MicrosoftX.

Computer Vision is the art of distilling actionable information from images. 

In this hands-on course, we’ll learn about Image Analysis techniques using OpenCV and the Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit to segment images into meaningful parts. We’ll explore the evolution of Image Analysis, from classical to Deep-Learning techniques. 

We’ll use Transfer Learning and Microsoft ResNet to train a model to perform Semantic Segmentation.
