Course Information

Objective of the course: The field of visual recognition has become part of our lives with applications in self-driving cars, satellite monitoring, surveillance, video analytics particularly in scene understanding, crowd behaviour analysis, action recognition etc. It has eased human lives by acquiring, processing, analyzing and understanding digital images and extraction of high-dimensional data from the real world in order to produce numerical or symbolic information. The visual recognition encapsulates image classification, localization and detection. The course on visual recognition will help students understand new tools, techniques and methods which are influencing the visual recognition field.

Outcome of the course: At the end of this course, the students will be able apply the concepts to solve some real problems in recognition. The students will be able to use computational visual recognition for problems ranging from extracting features, classifying images, to detecting and outlining objects and activities in an image or video using machine learning and deep learning concepts. The student will be also being able to invent new methods in visual recognition for various applications.
