CSCI336 Topics in Computer Vision (3 semester hours)

The goal of this course is to introduce students to various computer vision techniques, beginning with the fundamentals and progressing to more advanced learning and attention concepts. Image classification and annotation, object recognition and image search, various object detection techniques, motion estimation, object tracking in video, human action recognition, and image stylization, editing, and new image generation are some of the topics that will be covered. Students will learn how to use visual entropy and similar techniques to understand the key differences and overlaps between human-based and computer-based visual systems. (Prerequisite: CSCI381)
