Contents:The goal of computer vision is to allow computers to recognize and understand the world through visual information such as images and 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 depicted in images and videos. The course is centered around two main themes:
  • Multi-view reconstruction: construct a 3D object from multiple views
  • Classification with CNNs: classify videos with human actions using CNNs
Literature:Richard Szeliski, "Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications", 2020 (download here for free). The second edition is currently in preparation.
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. For the second part, we will be using Python, but will provide sufficient materials and support.
Exam form:The final grade is average of the following assessments:
  • Assignments [60%]
  • Final exam [40%]
The minimum final grade to pass the course is 5.5. Assignments and final exam should each be completed with a minimum of grade 4.
Minimum effort to qualify for 2nd chance exam:You can only participate in the re-take exam if your grade on the exam was at least 4.
