OVERVIEW

The course offers an introduction to state-of-the-art methods for visual data analysis. In particular it deals with image and video understanding.

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Learning how to represent image content adaptively by means of shallow or deep computational models and biologically-inspired hierarchical models, and how to tackle image classification and categorization problems.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

Knowledge of the main computational vision methods, including classical methods and deep learning approaches. Ability to design and implement a CV algorithm of medium difficulty and to analyse/modify algorithms created by others. Ability to analyze the results obtained critically and exhaustively. Ability to present the methods studied with an adequate use of technical terms and tools.

PREREQUISITES

EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

  • Actively attending students (delivering assignments on time) 50% project 50% oral  - otherwise 30% individual project - 70% oral

ASSESSMENT METHODS

  • Knowledge of the main computational vision methods is assessed with the oral exam. Ability to design and implement a CV algorithm of medium difficulty is assessed by the final project; ability analyse/modify algorithms created by others is assessed by hand-on activities. Ability to analyze the results obtained critically and exhaustively is assessed during the oral, with questions on the project. Ability to present the methods studied with an adequate use of technical terms and tools is assessed by project report and oral exam.
