This module contains a wrapper of the detector provided by the OpenCV [1] project. At the moment, we assume the use of OpenCV v2.x and therefore this detector will not be available for Python 3.x. We provide a number of pre-trained models that have been provided by the OpenCV community, all of which are implementations of the Viola-Jones method [2].
