Investigates current research topics in image-based graphics and vision. We will examine data sources, features, and algorithms useful for understanding and manipulating visual data. We will pay special attention to methods that harness large-scale or Internet-derived data. Vision topics such as scene understanding and object detection will be linked to graphics applications such as photo editing and image-based rendering. These topics will be pursued through independent reading, class discussion and presentations, and state-of-the-art projects. Strong mathematical skills and previous imaging (vision or computational photography) courses are essential. Instructor permission required.
