Detecting the face and eyes of a static image in the frontal plane is a straightforward Computer Vision task. We are able to use the pre-trained cascade models which come with OpenCV; these are based on trained Haar features. I wanted to provide a copy of the syntax I use. Whenever I approach a problem, I always use a basic syntax first, as a baseline comparison. In this post, I will detail how to identify any face and/or eyes using Python and OpenCV using static images. I will make a follow-up blog post for how to identify face and eyes using a web camera in real-time. It is very important that you have both setup on your system, otherwise...
