How to Install Amazon Rekognition Python Package

To be able to se Amazon Rekognition API for OCR, we need to have the openCV library installed on the system. We can install it by using pip. To interface with the Amazon Rekognition API, we need to use the boto3 package: the AWS SDK. Luckily, boto3 is incredibly simple to install, requiring only a single pip-install command: 

$ pip install boto3 

If you are using a Python virtual environment or an Anaconda environment, be sure to use the appropriate command to access your Python environment before running the above command (otherwise, boto3 will be installed in the system install of Python).
