Power Pairing: OpenCV* & Inference Engine in the OpenVINO™ Toolkit

OpenCV is a widely used framework for rapid computer vision development. This video shows how to get started with the inference engine, the API for inference capabilities in the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, from the perspective of developers who know OpenCV. Learn how to convert images or frames in the OpenCV Mat format for use by inference, how to parse/display inference output, and how to convert OpenCV DNN code to the inference engine.
