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.
