COS 473 - Computer Vision

Computer Vision is an accessible sub-field of computer science that is rising in importance and accelerating on the strengths of machine learning methods that have become the 21st century model for artificial intelligence.  In this course, we will explore the uses of tools and techniques to understand our world through computing using images as our data. The first half of the course will introduce machine learning and convolutional neural networks for object recognition and classification, photogrammetry and reconstruction, and multimodal and hyperspectral imaging. As the course progresses, we will delve into the topics of image acquisition, mathematical analysis, the Fourier transform and frequency space, statistical pattern recognition, and other foundations of the field.
