Postgraduate Course: Advanced Vision (Level 11) (INFR11031)
|School||School of Informatics
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This module aims to build on the introductory computer vision material taught in Image and Vision Computing. The main aim is to give students an understanding of the main concepts in computer vision during the course of the lecture series and practicals.
Students will learn about: object detection and segmentation, video understanding (action classification, optical flow, etc), vision and language, learning from limited data (few-shot learning, weakly supervised data, etc) and reconstruction.
The activities of the module are designed to further develop intellectual skills in the areas of: laboratory, writing (lab reports), teamwork, critical analysis, programming and laboratory skills.
