Cognitive Vision Systems
Electrical and Computer Engineering
3rd Cycle Studies
Algebra, Differential Calculus, Probability.
Teaching methods include lectures by the professor, presentations of specific topics by the students and also tutorial supervision.
The goals and outcomes of this unit include learn how to extract information from images so that it is possible to estimate 3D world and object structure, object motion (including velocities and displacements), object recognition, shapes and activities. The techniques that the student has to learn are based on learning and classification.
Introduction to probability, Fitting probability models, Learning and inference in vision, Regression and Classification models, Graphical Models, Models for chains, trees and grids, Models for shape, style and identity, Models for visual words.
