Abstract: scikit-image is a collection of image processing algorithms for the Scientific Python (SciPy) ecosystem. It has a Pythonic API, is well documented, and aims to provide researchers and practitioners with well-tested, fundamental building blocks for rapidly constructing sophisticated image processing pipelines.
In this training, we give an interactive overview of the library, and let participants try their hand at various educational image processing challenges.
Attendees are expected to have a working knowledge of NumPy, SciPy,and Matplotlib.
