CS214: Computer Vision: Making Computers See


Course Description

What do computers see and how can we make them understand and react to the things that they see? This course will cover basic concepts in computer vision and image processing, giving students a chance to explore sight by extracting information from captured images. Low-level computer graphics techniques will be applied to captured images to emphasize identified information. Projects will be used to explore computer vision techniques and to create a better understanding of what computers are capable of seeing. Object-oriented programming paradigms and good general programming techniques will be covered. Prerequisite: At least one semester of college-level programming in a high-level programming language, e.g., C, C++, or Java. This course satisfies Division I distribution requirement. PRJ, QUA
