Universidad Tecnológica de Bolívar
Aims and Scope
This course discusses advanced topics and current research in computer vision. Students are expected to read papers selected from various subareas such as 3D reconstruction, machine vision and inspection, segmentation and grouping, and pattern recognition. Approaches for learning from image data will be covered and include topics from convolutional neural networks, sparse and redundant representations, and others. The course will be a mix of lecture, student presentation and discussion.
- Gaining research experience in computer vision.
- Get exposed to a variety of topics and become familiar with state-of-the-art techniques.
- Learn to read and evaluate other people’s work.
- Get hands dirty on a research project.
Tutorials, review materials
- MATLAB tutorial
- More MATLAB tutorials: basic operations, programming, working with images
- Linear algebra review
- Random variables review
This is a new course, this website will be updated as we go along.
