This course discusses advanced topics and current research in computer vision. Students are expected to read papers selected from various subareas such as reconstruction, segmentation and grouping, object and activity recognition, scene understanding, and vision and language. Approaches for learning from image and video data will be covered and include topics from convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, structured predictions and others. The course will be a mix of lecture, student presentation and discussion. Prior experience from CSC 249/449 or CSC 246/446 is expected.
This is a tentative schedule of the course.
Course materials will be posted on Blackboard.
Red: lecture; Blue: student presentation; Green: project presentation; Grey: no class or cancelled class.
