About

This Python Project - pillow, tesseract, and opencv offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Michigan is part of the Python 3 Programming Specialization.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

This Python Project - pillow, tesseract, and opencv offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Michigan will walk you through a hands-on project suitable for a portfolio. You will be introduced to third-party APIs and will be shown how to manipulate images using the Python imaging library (pillow), how to apply optical character recognition to images to recognize text (tesseract and py-tesseract), and how to identify faces in images using the popular opencv library. 

By the end of the course you will have worked with three different libraries available for Python 3 to create a real-world data-analysis project.

The course is best-suited for learners who have taken the first four courses of the Python 3 Programming Specialization. Learners who already have Python programming skills but want to practice with a hands-on, real-world data-analysis project can also benefit from this course.

What You Will Learn

  • How to inspect and understand APIs and third party libraries to be used with Python 3
  • How to apply the Python imaging library (pillow) to open, view, and manipulate images, including cropping, resizing, recoloring, and overlaying text
  • How to apply the python tesseract (py-tesseract) library with Python 3 in order to detect text in images through optical character recognition (OCR)
  • How to apply the open source computer vision library (opencv) to detect faces in images, & how to crop and manipulate these faces into contact sheets
