Object recognition and computer vision

Lecturer : Ivan Lpatev, Jean Ponce, Cordelia Schmid, Josef Sivic, (ENS Ulm)

Objective of the course :

Automated object recognition - and more generally scene analysis - from photographs and videos is the great challenge of computer vision. The objective of this course is to provide a coherent introductory overview of the image, object and scene models, as well as the methods and algorithms, used today to address this challenge.

Topics :

  •  Instance-level recognition: camera geometry, local-invariant features, correspondence, efficient visual search
  •  Category-level recognition: bags of features, sparse coding and dictionary learning
  •  Neural networks, optimization methods
  •  Convolutional neural networks for visual recognition
  •  Motion and human actions
  •  3D object recognition
  •  Weakly-supervised learning for visual recognition
