Contents:The goal of computer vision is to allow computers to recognize and understand the world through visual information such as images or videos.

In this course, you will learn how cameras capture the 3D world, how to combine different views to reconstruct the world in 3D, how images can be described and how we can train algorithms to recognize what's on images. The course is centered around two main themes:
  • Multi-view reconstruction: construct a 3D object from multiple views
  • Image classification: classify novel images based on supervised learning

Programming skills in C/C++ are required. This course emphasizes the practicality of computer vision, meaning more projects, which are more fun.
Literature:Richard Szeliski, "Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications", 2010 (download here)
Course form:The course combines theory (lectures, tested during exam) and practice (assignments). The assignments are an important part of the course and final grade. Programming skills in C++ are required.
Exam form:The final grade is average of the following assessments:
  • Assignments [50%]
  • Final exam [50%]
The minimum final grade to pass the course is 6.
Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:To qualify for the re-take exam, the grade of your exam should be at least 4.
