First Principles of Computer Vision Specialization

This specialization presents the first comprehensive treatment of the foundations of computer vision. It focuses on the mathematical and physical underpinnings of vision and has been designed for learners, practitioners and researchers who have little or no knowledge of computer vision. The program includes a series of 5 courses. Any learner who completes this specialization has the potential to build a successful career in computer vision, a thriving field that is expected to increase in importance in the coming decades.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Master the working principles of a digital camera and learn the fundamentals of imaging processing
- Create a theory of feature detection and develop algorithms for extracting features from images
- Explore novel methods for using visual cues (shading, defocus, etc.) to recover the 3D shape of an object from multiple images or viewpoints
- Get exposed to fundamental perceptions tasks such as image segmentation, object tracking, and object recognition

The ultimate goal of a computer vision system is to generate a detailed symbolic description of each image shown. This course focuses on the all-important problem of perception. We first describe the problem of tracking objects in complex scenes. We look at two key challenges in this context. The [...]

This course focuses on the recovery of the 3D structure of a scene from images taken from different viewpoints. We start by first building a comprehensive geometric model of a camera and then develop a method for finding (calibrating) the internal and external parameters of the camera model. Then, [...]

Features and Boundaries (Coursera)

This course focuses on the detection of features and boundaries in images. Feature and boundary detection is a critical preprocessing step for a variety of vision tasks including object detection, object recognition and metrology – the measurement of the physical dimensions and other properties of objects. The course presents [...]

Camera and Imaging (Coursera)

This course covers the fundamentals of imaging – the creation of an image that is ready for consumption or processing by a human or a machine. Imaging has a long history, spanning several centuries. But the advances made in the last three decades have revolutionized the camera and dramatically [...]
