Help for the shortest way to install a suitable version of Python, Numpy, and OpenCV.
#1
Hi all, I hope you are all doing well and in a good health.
I'm developing my codes with Matlab and Visual studio. I'm a newbie in Python but I've been overwhelmed with the terrible burthens of the successive versions of Python and the consistent modules that I would be interested in.
My PC is DELL Intel Core i5-6500 CPU @ 3.20GHz 3.19 GHz , 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD.
I'm interested in developing codes for AI solutions, Computer visions.
What is the shortest way to install a suitable version of Python, Numpy, and OpenCV?
Should I first install pip or it is already installed with Python?
Am I obliged to utilize versions like anaconda, or else? or I could depend on the Python only

I use pyenv see: https://python-forum.io/thread-15441.htm...ight=pyenv
GitHub: https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv-virtualenv
It will allow you to install as many versions of python as you wish, and then pick and choose a particular version to be loaded into a virtual environment for a specific project.
This is great when you have versions that require a specific release of python.

pip comes with Python,so no install.
