Computer Vision is a very broad field and as old as Computer Science itself. Why vision? Many of the most successful life forms have evolved incorporating visual information as one of the main sources of knowledge extraction to interact with the environment. In humans more than half of neurons in the brain dedicated to the senses are involved in analyzing information that comes through the eyes. Many computer systems consider visual information as their input, needing to analyze and extract knowledge from static images or a succession of them. Iris and fingerprint recognition for identity, automatic camera surveillance, face and object recognition, motion tracking, robotics and humanoids, or developing devices for the visually impaired are some of the applications of Computer Vision. In this course we study all the areas that comprise Computer Vision and look deeper into some of the most relevant and successful methods that have been presented until the present time.

Image formation, image features, object recognition, stereopsis, motion, structure from motion, biological inspiration/plausibility

Lecture, assessment is based on a single examination at the end of the course.
