Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this module, students will be able to:

  • Review and asses advanced computer vision technologies
  • Present and discuss state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms
  • Implement, test, evaluate and report exemplary computer vision solutions
Learning Aims

This course is an advanced master class in computer vision. It does not intend to teach fundamentals, but focuses on latest research. Guest lecturers will present leading edge research from various hot areas of computer vision. Students will get direct exposure to high class scientists and their research. In their own work, students will select each a recent paper and present it to the class. Further, they will be asked to execute small projects to explore selected state-of-the-art computer vison technology.
