Image Processing and Computer Vision


Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

The student is recommended to have basic knowledge in probability theory, statistics, and linear algebra

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

Cameras capture visual data from the surrounding world. Building systems which can automatically process such data requires image processing and computer vision methods. Students who complete the module will understand relevant theories and methods within image processing and computer vision as well their applicability.
