Vision and Image Processing (VIP)
Vision and Image Processing (VIP) gives an overview of modern vision techniques used in man and machine. Focus is both on conceptual understanding of the models and methods, and on practical experience. The course covers state of the art methods for image analysis including how to solve visual processing tasks such as object recognition and content-based image search and retrieval.
The course is not focused on providing a deep mathematical understanding of the techniques but will include the mathematical background necessary to understand vision and image processing.
Through a number of mandatory programming exercises, the students will develop simple programs and obtain solutions to non-trivial vision tasks. After the course, the students will be able to understand the models and principles of vision technologies used in new products and applications.
This course is mandatory for students enrolled in the IT and Cognition MSc study programme and is an elective course for students enrolled in the MSc programme in Computer Science. The course content does not overlap with Signal and Image Processing (MSc in Computer Science).
