My name isIgor Antropov and I would like to participate in GSoC 2019.I amfirst-year undergraduate master majoring in Software Engineering at ITMOUniversity (Saint Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies,Mechanics and Optics).I aminterested in computer vision and C++. I have made AR-application using Unityand OpenCVForUnity at my third-year of bachelor degree. Unfortunately, thatOpenCVForUnity was based on OpenCV version 2.1 or smaller and was the only onefree to use. There was no algorithm for markers detection, so I had to codeit.Â At the fourth-year, I have implementobject tracking algorithm with C++ and OpenCV using HOG features and colornames features. Additionally, I havebeen working as programmer with Qt for 1 year.
I aminterested in implementation of different algorithms using GIL, so I propose toimplement some image feature detection and matching algorithms. For example,ORB keypoints detector(http://www.willowgarage.com/sites/default/files/orb_final.pdf) and brute-forcematching.Â Besides, I think Boost.GIL numeric algorithms can have some improvements (add 2D convolution, add convolve_option_extend_reflect as convolve_boundary_options).Â If Boost.GIL users need some other algorithms to be implemented,please contact me.
As my competencytest, I have implement a simple Canny edge detection algorithm using GIL. https://github.com/boostorg/gil/pull/258
