Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

  • Representation and feature extraction in digital images
  • principles of recognition and classification, Bayesian decisions
  • discriminant functions, neural networks, support vector machines
  • learning, optimization of classifiers
  • overview of recognition in biological systems
  • examples of recognition: handwritten text, faces, objects.

Intended learning outcomes *

After the course you should be able to:

  • identify basic notions, terminology, theories models and methods for classification of data,
  • develop and systematically evaluate a number of basic methods for classification of data,
  • experimentally evaluate algorithms for classification and recognition of objects in digital gray value images,
  • choose appropriate method in order to automatically solve a given classification problem,
  • know about theories of how the brain processes visual information for classification,

in order to

  • be able to solve general problems of data representation and classification,
  • be able to implement, analyze and evaluate simple systems for automatic classification of images,
  • obtain a broad base of knowledge in order to be able to acquire information about and read literature in the field.
