Learning objectives / competencies

Target skills:

The student will gain an overview on established and modern image processing techniques. The course provides tools, methods, models and techniques for the following topics: image formation, optics, imagers, color, image segmentation, image analysis, image features, image alignment, estimation in computer vision, programming and deep learning.

 

Competences:

The student will understand basic problems in image processing and machine vision, e.g. image segmentation, feature detection, image matching or estimation problems in alignment.

He/she will know methods, algorithms and common techniques to solve the above mentioned problems.

The student will be able to computationally apply the methods on given low-level and higher-level image processing tasks in real world computer vision problems.
