I would like to try out opencv face recognition for android...I have worked with android but i am totally noob in case of opencv. I need to build an app that would recognize a face by comparing it to a set of images. I would like to know where do i start from regarding opencv api for android. What would be the most convenient way to start and what docs to read.......any amount of help will be appreciated. Thanks.
