Module overview

The challenge of computer vision is to develop a computer based system with the capabilities of the human eye-brain system. It is therefore primarily concerned with the problem of capturing and making sense of digital images. The field draws heavily on many subjects including digital image processing, artificial intelligence, computer graphics and psychology.

This course will explore some of the basic principles and techniques from these areas which are currently being used in real-world computer vision systems and the research and development of new systems.

The objectives are to develop your understanding of the basic principles and techniques of image processing and image understanding, and to develop your skills in the design and implementation of computer vision software.

This module is taught together with COMP3204 Computer Vision. COMP6223 has higher requirements on the desired learning outcomes which will be assessed by a different set of coursework.
