Hi there Open CV team, Sorry I'm newbie and new to this forum

I'm looking for Open CV library that can be accessed through my hosting (like OpenCV library accessed by PHP language). Are there any of them? or Could you give solutions to my problems? Thanks

By the way I would like to create an applications that can detects an object so that they know their categories without user input in and detecting the logo so they know what type of object is that. (Object Detection and classification)

  • what is your hosting ? (do you "own" that box ? , root access ?, are you allowed, to install anything ?)

  • there is no support for php at all from opencv. though you can easily call "system someprog", you'd be way better off, doing this from python.

  • object detection and classification are 2 different things, and require different measures.

  • My hosting type is shared hosting with no root access but ssh allowed. There is some PECL and PEAR package installer on the cpanel.
    • So I must doing it on python language huh. Well thanks for the answer.
    • Is it possible if I open up the opencv code and then transform the language to php version. ex: (My own opencv haar-likes PHP).
    • Well I meant the object detection and classification is like Google Vision API, you know, upload the image, and showed all the objects name on the image.

i'd say: forget the whole idea of doing your own computer-vision on that box, then.

if you want to build something like google vision api, you would need like 5 years, you seem to underestimate the costs of this entirely ;(

no you cannot do classification with haar cascades.

please rather license an existing service, than wasting your time.

Well thanks for your comment. If there is no help, then I will figure out. Maybe using python opencv.
