Computer Vision workshop with Adam Harvey

This workshop will explore emerging and existing capabilities in computer vision. Participants can engage with biometric enrollment through several facial analysis algorithms from EigenFaces to 3D reconstruction techniques. The goal of this workshop will be to develop a more technical understanding of remote biometrics through a direct experience with the algorithms. Biometric enrollment is optional. No previous coding experience necessary.
