Both the rapid growth of image and video data and new applications such as robotics require automated image processing. This course introduces the basic concepts of artificial vision. Topics: Image acquisition and representation; mathematical background; basic point operations; linear and nonlinear fitering; morphological pattern recognition; color (perceptual aspects and technical representation); gray-, color- and texture-segmentation; image reconstruction and enhancement; object recognition; compression; applications (e.g., image search in databases). A focus is on object recognition, where topics range from simple edge based methods and template matching over traditional approaches like PCA to modern algorithms such as Boosting, SIFT and SURF.
