Learning outcome

On successful completion of this course, students should have the knowledge to:
- understand basic concepts, terminology, theories, models and methods in the field of image processing and computer vision
-describe basic methods of computer vision related to multi-scale representation, edge detection and detection of other primitives, stereo, motion and object recognition.
-assess which methods to use for solving a given problem, and analyse the accuracy of the methods in computer vision

Upon completion of the course the students will acquire skills to:
-develop and apply computer vision techniques for solving practical problems
-choose appropriate image processing methods for image filtering, image restoration, image reconstruction, segmentation, classification and representation

General competence:
-Apply knowledge and skills to new areas to understand and conduct complex tasks and projects.
-Analyse relevant professional, and research ethical problems.
