Image Based Recognition and Classification (bik12)
This course will focus on methods for recognition and classification of image content such as face detection and written text. There are two main strands to this course. The first deals with introducing the students to image processing techniques to extract information, feature extraction, from images that can be used for the classification of its content.
While the second and more substantial part gives a thorough overview at a practical and theoretical level of methods to perform the classification. Most of these methods rely on machine learning techniques and probabilistic reasoning.
Throughout algorithms introduced in the course will be tested and/or implemented by the students on real world images.

Before the first scheduled
lab moment, you should also join the course with the CSC's course
administration program course.
This command sets up your environment setting such as for example access to some of the module files needed during the course. These will be loaded automatically each time you log in. In addition, it controls with each login if a lecturer has sent any new messages to course participants.
