Subject Title
Computer Vision

Subject Description
As cameras are becoming a popular feature of standard PCs and mobile devices, it is important to be able to extract useful information from this data. This course covers simple computer vision concepts, such as capturing digital images and video, applying simple and arithmetic changes to images (e.g. crop, rotate, enhance color), and extracting information from images (e.g. finding or counting objects). Also, concepts such as tracking objects in a video sequence are introduced. Students will work on a project targeting a computer vision application such as face recognition, security systems, medical imaging, robotics, and others.

Credit Status
1 credit (3 units)
Professional Option for BSD - Honours Bachelor of Technology (Software Development)
