This week we welcome Adrian Rosebrock (@PyImageSearch) as our PyDev of the Week. Adrian is the author of several books on Python and OpenCV. He is also the author of PyImageSearch.com, a very popular Python blog that focuses on computer vision. Let’s take some time to get to know him a bit better!
Can you tell us about yourself and PyImageSearch?
Hi Mike, thank you for the opportunity to be interviewed on PyDev of the Week.
My name is Adrian Rosebrock. I have Ph.D in computer science with a focus in computer vision and machine learning from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC).
I blog over at PyImageSearch.com about Python, computer vision, and deep learning. Over the past few years running PyImageSearch I have written a handful of books/courses, including:
- Practical Python and OpenCV, a gentle introduction to the world of computer vision and OpenCV using Python.
- PyImageSearch Gurus, an in-depth dive into computer vision, similar to what you may find in a college-level course, only *much* more hands-on and practical.
- Deep Learning for Computer Vision with Python, my brand new 800+ page book. This book is my *magnum opus* and is for readers who want to master neural networks and deep learning.
