Image Classification with EmguCV

Emgu CV is a cross platform .Net wrapper to the OpenCV image processing library. Allowing OpenCV functions to be called from .NET compatible languages such as C#, VB, VC++, IronPython etc. The wrapper can be compiled by Visual Studio, Xamarin Studio and Unity, it can run on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, iOS, Android and Windows Phone.[1]

We will write code with C#. Actually, this code is written in C++.  We will translate this code to C#. And we will use EmguCV instead of OpenCV. And this code allows classifying images that we will upload. (

  1. Firstly, download GoogLeNet model files: bvlc_googlenet.prototxt and bvlc_googlenet.caffemodel
  2. Also, you need the file with names of ILSVRC2012 classes: synset_words.txt.

Put these files into the working directory of this program.
