Course Objectives: This class introduces the fundamental techniques in computer vision. Initially basic concepts of image formation, representation and camera projection geometries will be given. Later some classical image processing techniques will be introduced such as edge detection, segmentation, thresholding etc. Image matching, optical flow, local image features will be described in the context of multiple image processing. Basic image recognition techniques are also to be introduced. 3D inference will be another focus where stereo imaging, 3D reconstruction and various shape from X techniques are to be discussed.
