Description: The goal of computer vision is to make sense of the three dimensional world from captured images and videos. This requires understanding how light interacts with objects in the environment and then captured by a camera. The goal is to solve problems such as estimating 3D shape of an environment (How does Kinect work?), how to detect and recognize people (How to build your own iPhoto?), detect and track how things move. The course provides an introduction to solving such problems using vision tools such as feature detection, image segmentation, motion estimation, image mosaics, 3D shape reconstruction, and object recognition.
