Look inside
Welcome to the era of digital security! In this quick liveProject, you’ll develop an efficient solution for detecting faces in a live video stream. You’ll need to read an input video from a webcam, detect faces present in the input video stream, draw bounding boxes around the detected faces, and then write the detected faces to a new video.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
