Synopsis: This course addresses state-of-the-art computer vision algorithms that let computers see, learn, and understand image and video content. After being taught the required basics in machine learning, students will - accompanied by practical exercises - get to know the most promising techniques.

The topics of the course may be summarized as follows:

  • Machine learning
  • Implementation of algorithms using Intel IPP and MKL
  • Image/video processing
  • Media content analysis

The learned concepts will be illustrated by successful examples in practice. The accompanying exercises will contain some hands-on experiences. Towards the end of the course more advanced topics in object detection and object recognition will be addressed.


  • [29.07.2015] The starting time of the final exam has been postponed for 30 minutes. The exam will therefore commence at 10.30 a.m.
  • [05.06.2015] The exercise on June 12th will be cancelled. Assignment 7 will be discussed one week later on June 19th.
  • [03.03.2015] Page creation.

Important Comments

  • In order to be admitted to the final exam, students are required to register with the course in Digicampus and STUDIS. No additional requirements are imposed.
  • All reading notes are relevant for the exams independent on how thoroughly they have been discussed during the lecture. Thus read them carefully.
