Over the past few years computer vision has re-emerged as one of the most popular and challenging technical areas in computer science. Recent advances in computer graphics hardware as well as the development of novel algorithms for the fast and accurate extraction of salient features in images, have made it possible to significantly progress the state-of-the-art to a point where nowadays many commercial products incorporate some type of embedded computer vision system. The goal of the proposed course is to introduce graduate students to the different aspects of computer vision, give them the ability to understand, apply, analyze and evaluate computer vision algorithms, and implement components that are fundamental to many modern vision systems.
Suggested textbooks: 1. Computer Vision: A Modern Approach (2nd Edition) by David A. Forsyth, Jean Ponce. ISBN-13: 978-0136085928 2. Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications Hardcover by Richard Szeliski. ISBN-13: 978-1848829343
