Dec 21 Final project notes:
It is acceptable to use available code libraries for ancillary parts of your final project. Examples include image I/O, minimization algorithms... If you have questions about your project, feel free e-mail cos429@cs. Benedict will hold office hours by appointment during reading period.

Course Description

An introduction to the concepts of 2D and 3D computer vision. Topics include: low-level image processing methods such as filtering and edge detection; segmentation and clustering; optical flow and tracking; shape reconstruction from stereo, motion, texture, and shading. Throughout the course, we also look at aspects of human vision and perception that guide and inspire computer vision techniques.

Prerequisites: Prerequisites for the course are COS 217 and COS 226. The course will require programming (in C, C++, and/or Matlab), as well as some background in data structures and linear algebra. Experience with signal processing, statistics, and/or computer graphics is useful but not necessary.

Grading: There will be four programming assignments worth a total of 70% of the final grade, as well as a final project worth 30%.
