What is Open CV?
OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions mainly aimed at real-time computer vision. Originally developed by Intel, it was later supported by Willow Garage and is now maintained by Itseez.
OpenCV is an open source computer vision and machine learning software library. OpenCV was built to provide a common infrastructure for computer vision applications and to accelerate the use of machine perception in the commercial products. Being a BSD-licensed product, OpenCV makes it easy for businesses to utilize and modify the code.
- Participate in discussions regarding new code submissions. We have a lot of pull requests, and we need more people to review and test them! Actually you may become an official reviewer in the OpenCV project one day.
- If you need a simple task to start from, please consider these ones. They are simple enough, so you can get familiar with the contribution process.
- Contribute code: it has to be BSD and should not add extra dependencies. More information about a code submission is available on our developer site: contribution guide and coding style guide.
- Test our latest code from the Git repository and report/fix any bugs you find. Reporting bugs.
- Help us optimize the bindings for different platforms/languages: CUDA, NEON, Python, Android or iOS.
- Help us improve the unit tests, documentation, samples.
- Become a sponsor to help hire developers and organize events.
- Contribute to the OpenCV library by providing coder time or by being part of development decisions.
- Provide the infrastructure (testing farm, build farm, website).
