This is a problem set. Some of these are easy, others are far more difficult. The purpose of these problems sets are:
- to build your skill applying computational thinking to a problem
- to assess your knowledge and skills of different programming practices
What is this problem set trying to do
This is computer vision problem set. In this example we are learning computer vision, API's, and computer speech.
Please design and build a system which utilizes a camera to detect faces as they enter our classroom. The system should recognize faces, and store faces with known-names. The system should say "hello <STUDENTNAME>" when they enter our classroom.
- User Input: The camera detects Mr. MacKenty entering the classroom.
- Expected output: A computer voice says "Hello Mr. MacKenty"
There is no hacker version of this problem set.
