Course overview:

Topics: This is a graduate seminar course in computer vision.   We will survey and discuss current vision papers relating to object recognition, auto-annotation of images, and scene understanding.  The goals of the course will be to understand current approaches to some important problems, to actively analyze their strengths and weaknesses, and to identify interesting open questions and possible directions for future research.

See the syllabus for an outline of the main topics we'll be covering.

Requirements: Students will be responsible for writing paper reviews each week, participating in discussions, completing one programming assignment, presenting once or twice in class (depending on enrollment, and possibly done in teams), and completing a project (done in pairs). 

Note that presentations are due one week before the slot your presentation is scheduled.  This means you will need to read the papers, prepare experiments, make plans with your partner, create slides, etc. more than one week before the date you are signed up for.  The idea is to meet and discuss ahead of time, so that we can iterate as needed the week leading up to your presentation. 

More details on the requirements and grading breakdown are here.

Prereqs:  Courses in computer vision and/or machine learning (378 Computer Vision and/or 391 Machine Learning, or similar); ability to understand and analyze conference papers in this area; programming required for experiment presentations and projects. 

Please talk to me if you are unsure if the course is a good match for your background.  I generally recommend scanning through a few papers on the syllabus to gauge what kind of background is expected.  I don't assume you are already familiar with every single algorithm/tool/image feature a given paper mentions, but you should feel comfortable following the key ideas.

Syllabus overview:

  1. Single-object recognition fundamentals: representation, matching, and classification
    1. Specific objects
    2. Classification and global models
    3. Objects composed of parts
    4. Region-based methods
  2. Beyond single objects: recognizing categories in context and learning their properties
    1. Context
    2. Attributes
    3. Actions and objects/scenes
  3. Scalability issues in category learning, detection, and search
    1. Too many pixels!
    2. Too many categories!
    3. Too many images!
  4. Recognition and "everyday" visual data
    1. Landmarks, locations, and tourists
    2. Alignment with text
    3. Pictures of people
