Computer Vision
Master in Information Health Engineering (Plan: 427 - Estudio: 359)

Coordinating teacher: GONZALEZ DIAZ, IVAN

Department assigned to the subject: Signal and Communications Theory Department

Type: Electives
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Machine Learning Statistical Signal Processing Biomedical Image Processing Deep learning
Students are expected to achieve the following goals: - Learn how images are formed both in the human visual system and in digital cameras, attending both to photometric and geometric dimensions. - Know well-known algorithms that implement processes of human vision: extraction of visual features, motion estimation, stereopsis (2-view geometry), structure from motion (n-view geometry) image registration, object tracking, visual recognition. - Apply the knowledge acquired in previous related subjects (e.g. machine learning, deep learning) to the field of computer vision. - Solve practical problems related to computer vision - Design and develop a scientific-technical project that involves the use of computer vision techniques.

Learning activities and methodology
LEARNING ACTIVITIES We will consider the following learning activities: AF3 Theoretical practical classes AF4 Laboratory practices AF5 Tutorials AF6 Team work AF7 Student individual work AF8 Partial and final exams METHODOLOGIES MD1: Class lectures by the professor with the support of computer and audiovisual media, in which the main concepts of the course are developed and complemented with bibliography. MD2: Critical reading of texts recommended by the professor of the course. MD3: Resolution of practical cases, problems, etc. .... posed by the teacher individually or in groups. MD4: Presentation and discussion in class, under the moderation of the professor, of topics related to the content of the course, as well as case studies. MD5: Elaboration of works and reports individually or in groups. TUTORING REGIME There will be 2 hours a week of tutorials for students where the teacher will be available in his office.
