CPSC 505 (Image Understanding I) or permission of the instructor. Matlab is a convenient tool for writing programs because of the image toolkit, but no familiarity with Matlab is assumed and you are free to use any other language such as Python (but I'm not familiar with Python so you're on your own).


Most of the course material will be based on a selected set of research papers, but Rick Szeliski's book (available online) is a valuable resource. See the reading list..


There will be one or two initial programming assignments. In addition, each student will be expected to complete an individual research project in some area of computer vision. A written project proposal will be required midway through the course as well as a final written project report. Each student will also have the option to give a final project presentation to the class. Grading will be weighted roughly as follows: 25% homeworks; 10% class participation, 20% project proposal; 45% final project report.
