Hello, i am working on a project that involves identifying if there are any cats in an image. i found basically what i am looking for in this that was mentioned on the answer to this question.

the software requires Matlab which i have never used nor do i own it. The website has articles on the subject but seem very complicated and too technical for me to understand very easily.

i was hoping to get some guidance on where i should begin to look. any questions, or if more information is needed, please feel free to ask thank you in advance.

if you're using opencv3.0, the latentsvm has a pretrained cat detector, also there's a catfrontalface lbpcascade

thank you berak. admittantly, I kind of don't know how to run the samples in your link. I tried to use the cat xml in place of the lbpcascade used in the java installation here. it took me a while to realize I can't read, and that you not only said that I need to be using opencv 3.0, but also be using latent svm which as far as I can tell, is very different than the java guide I linked. If possible, could you point me in the right direction to finding out how to run the samples? thank you in advance.
