Face Detection is a technology to identify faces from the image. We use Python’s OpenCV for this. We can also use Face Detection in the case of Animals too. If one can take a close look at the OpenCV repository, the haar cascades directory to be specific (where the OpenCV stores all its pre-trained haar classifiers to detect various objects, body parts, etc.), there are two files:
The objective of the program given is to detect the object of interest(cat face) in real-time and to keep tracking the same object. This is a simple example of how to detect the cat face in Python. You can try to use training samples of any other object of your choice to be detected by training the classifier on required objects.
Below is the implementation.
