Decision to discontinue this course:No information inserted
A course in computer science focusing on basic theory, models, and methods for classification of data with special emphasis on object recognition in digital images.
Content and learning outcomes
- 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.

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INL1 - Assignment, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
In this course all the regulations of the code of honor at the School of Computer science and Communication apply, see: http://www.kth.se/csc/student/hederskodex/1.17237?l=en_UK.
Other requirements for final grade
Laboratory assignments (LAB1; 1,5 university credits)
Hand in exercise (INL1; 1,5 university credits)
Examination (TEN1; 3 university credits )
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
