COL864: Special Topics in Artificial Intelligence
(Advance Computer Vision)
Even Semester 2018-19
Recent advances in algorithmic techniques, computation and memory technologies have reinvigorated interest in artificial intelligence (AI). Many of the successes in AI in last few years have come from its sub-area computer vision which deals with understanding, and extracting information from digital images and videos. This course will cover advanced topic in computer vision. We will examine data sources, features, and learning algorithms useful for understanding and manipulating visual data. The emphasis will be on scalability issues as well as acquiring the knowhow to work on interdisciplinary problems. The goal of this course is to give students the background and skills necessary to perform research in computer vision and its application domains such as robotics, healthcare, and computational photography. Students should understand the strengths and weaknesses of current approaches to research problems and identify interesting open questions and future research directions.
How to Fail in the Course
