How can computers understand the visual world of humans? This course treats vision as a process of inference from noisy and uncertain data and emphasizes probabilistic and statistical approaches. Topics may include perception of 3D scene structure from stereo, motion, and shading; image filtering, smoothing, edge detection; segmentation and grouping; texture analysis; learning, recognition and search; tracking and motion estimation. Strongly recommended: basic linear algebra, basic calculus and exposure to probability.
