16-385 Computer Vision, Spring 2017 |

Instructor: | Kris Kitani | |

Time: | Monday, Wednesday 1:30PM - 2:50PM | |

Location: | DOHERTY HALL 1212 |

Course Description

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to computer vision. Major topics include image processing, detection and recognition, geometry-based and physics-based vision and video analysis. Students will learn basic concepts of computer vision as well as hands on experience to solve reallife vision problems.

This course requires familarity with linear algebra and basic probability. MATLAB will be used for project assignments and will be covered as part of the introduction to the course.

Prerequisites

- • "Mathematical Foundations of Electrical Engineering" (18-202) and "Principles of Imperative Computation" (15-122) (OR)
- • "Matrix Algebra with Applications" (21-240) and "Matrices and Linear Transformations" (21-241) and "Calculus in Three Dimensions" (21-259) and "Principles of Imperative Computation" (15-122)
