IN9520 – Digital Image Analysis
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.
The course covers methods for analysis of digital images, segmentation, and object description. Central topics are feature extraction and classification of objects in images.
After this course:
- You have very good knowledge on methods for texture analysis and the assumptions behind them.
- You have very good knowledge of object shape representation and description.
- You can apply the theory and the linear algebra behind central methods for supervised classification of images, in particular Gaussian classifiers.
- You 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.
- You can use the theory behind central methods for feature selection and linear feature transforms.
Admission to the course
PhD candidates from the University of Oslo should apply for classes and register for examinations through Studentweb.
If a course has limited intake capacity, priority will be given to PhD candidates who follow an individual education plan where this particular course is included. Some national researchers’ schools may have specific rules for ranking applicants for courses with limited intake capacity.
PhD candidates who have been admitted to another higher education institution must apply for a position as a visiting student within a given deadline.

2 hours of lectures and 2 hours of exercises each week. You must pass all mandatory assignments before the exam. PhD-students are given an extended mandatory project.
Oral or written exam (4 hours) dependent on the number of student. PhD students are given additional exercises.
All mandatory assignments must be passed prior to the exam.
It will also be counted as one of your three attempts to sit the exam for this course, if you sit the exam for one of the following courses: IN5520 – Digital Image Analysis, INF4300 – Digital image analysis (continued), INF9305 – Digital Image Analysis (continued)
Examination support material
Language of examination
You may write your examination paper in Norwegian, Swedish, Danish or English.
Grades are awarded on a pass/fail scale. Read more about the grading system.
Resit an examination
Students who can document a valid reason for absence from the regular examination are offered a postponed examination at the beginning of the next semester. Re-scheduled examinations are not offered to students who withdraw during, or did not pass the original examination.
