Digital Verktøykassen 08.04.2021 11.0008.04.2021 15.00


In this second part of Vertkøykassen, we will look at several ways you can use face recognition. We will take one step further from the first part, where we learned to set up openFrameworks and the add-onxFaceTracker2 that does face recognition. It is recommended that you attended the first part or have experience with Xcode and programming.

openFrameworks is a creative tool consisting of C ++ libraries with open source code such as openGL (Graphic Language) and openCV (Computer Vision). openFrameworks is designed designed to assist the creative process by providing a simple and intuitive framework for experimentation. With the add-on ofxFaceTracker2 one can doe face recognition. 

Xcode should be pre-installed on your computer and ready to use when the workshop starts.

Time: 8 April 11.00-15.00
