This course addresses state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms that let computers see, learn, and understand image and video content. After being taught the required basics in machine learning, students will - accompanied by practical exercises - get to know the most promising techniques.
The topics of the course may be summarized as follows:
- Machine learning
- Image/video processing
- Media content analysis
- The learned concepts will be illustrated by successful examples in practice. The accompanying exercises will contain some hands-on experiences. Towards the end of the course more advanced topics in object detection and object recognition will be addressed.
