This hands-on guide gives an overview of computer vision and enables engineers to understand the implications and challenges behind mobile platform design choices. Using face-related algorithms as examples, the author surveys and illustrates how design choices and algorithms can be geared towards developing power-saving and efficient applications on resource constrained mobile platforms.
Presents algorithms for face detection and recognition
Explains applications of facial technologies on mobile devices
Includes an overview of other computer vision technologies
Comments about oreilly Face Detection and Recognition on Mobile Devices:
There are 44 pages were the content is poorly treated. The book is more alike to a scientific magazine article what & how it is done and some information to understand it in very short sentences. For persons who want a book as a guide, I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT; and because of the price, it is up to each other to buy it or not, but I believe you will find more on google or white-papers.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
