Changes in the course due to coronavirus

Autumn 2020 we plan for teaching and examinations to be conducted as described in the course description and on semester pages. However, changes may occur due to the corona situation. You will receive notifications about any changes at the semester page and/or in Canvas.

Spring 2020: Teaching and examinations was digitilized. See changes and common guidelines for exams at the MN faculty spring 2020.

Course content

The course covers methods for analysis of digital images, segmentation, and object description. Central topics are feature extraction and classification of objects in images.

Learning outcome

After this course you´ll:

  • have good knowledge on methods for texture analysis and the assumptions behind them.
  • have good knowledge of object shape representation and description.
  • understand the theory and the linear algebra behind central methods for supervised classification of images, in particular Gaussian classifiers.
  • understand the concept of curse-of-dimensionality and can use the theory in practice to carefully choose a subset of features and control the complexity of the classifier robustly.
  • know the theory behind central methods for feature selection and linear feature transforms.
