|Contents:||If you are wondering why we should learn about computer vision, consider this: if you think the fact that you can see the world through your eyes is important and beneficial, so is computer vision. The goal of computer vision is to make computer work like human visual perception, namely, to recognize and understand the world through visual information, such as, images or videos. Human visual perception, after millions of years of evolution, is extremely good in understanding and recognizing objects or scenes. To have similar abilities to human visual perception (or beyond), computer scientists have been attempting to develop algorithms by relying on various visual information, and this course is about these algorithms. |
The potential practical benefits of computer vision systems are immense. It is anticipated that computer vision systems will soon become commonplace and its technology will be applied for a broad range of products, such as, google search on images and videos, object/face recognition and tracking, human pose identification, 3D reconstruction from images, video analysis, image/video enhancement, robot vision, medical imaging, surveillance, remote sensing, user interactions for mobile devices, computer graphics, computer games, intelligent vehicle systems (a car that can drive itself), and many more.
To enrol the course, programming skills in C/C++ are required.

During the course, students are expected to have a few projects. Programming skills in C/C++ are required to accomplish the projects.
There is a written exam in the end of the course.
Attendance is mandatory.
|Exam form:||The final grade is average of the following assessments:|
* Projects [60%]
* Final Exam [30%]
* Attendance [10%]
|Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:||To participate in the retake of the exam, the original grade must be no less than 4.|
