  • Details:

  • This is an introductory course to computer vision and computational photography. This course will explore three topics: 1) image morphing, 2) shape matching, and 3) image search. This course is intended to provide you a hands-on experience with interesting things to do on images/pixels.

    The world is becoming image-centric. Camera are now found everywhere, in our cell phones, automobiles, even in medical surgery tools. Computer vision technology has lead to latest innovations in areas such as Hollywood movie production, medical diagnosis, biometrics, and digital library.

    This course is suited for students with all Engineering background, who has the basic knowledge of linear algebra and programming, and a lot of imagination.
