The goal of computer vision is to compute properties of the three-dimensional world from digital images. Problems in this field include identifying the 3D shape of an environment, determining how things are moving, and recognizing familiar people and objects, all through analysis of images and video. This course provides an introduction to computer vision, including such topics as feature detection, image segmentation, motion estimation, image mosaics, 3D shape reconstruction, and object recognition.
