Fall 2009

Course home Outline and lecture notes Assignments

Dec 14  Lecture notes for today are available.
Dec 10  Final project is up.
Dec 18  Assignment 4 is due.

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; classification and recognition. 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%.
