Digital Image Processing (Fourth Ed.). Prentice Hall, Upper
Saddle River, NJ. 2018.
This is a course about advances in computer vision and image processing.
You will learn advanced topics and algorithms in computer vision, building
on your knowledge from CMP SCI 5420
. You’ll be working
extensively to implement the
This course is a continuation of Cmp Sci 5420 from Fall 2020. We will study
the algorithms for frequency domain processing, wavelets and multiresolution
processing, image restoration, and segmentation. In addition, we’ll look at
the current research in image processing and computer graphics. Every
student will select a project of his/her own choice and get it approved by
me. Then, the student will study and implement the project and make a
presentation to the class.
This course covers new developments in digital image processing, computer
vision, and multimedia. Topics to be covered may include image databases,
object tracking, and large-scale data visualization.
At the end of this course, you are expected to independently undertake and
implement a research-oriented project in image processing successfully. You
should understand various image processing tasks and the algorithms required
to execute those tasks.
I'll expect you to be present in most of the classes. I will not be taking
attendance but if you start missing too many classes, please take
responsibility for your absence, specially when it concerns tests and
homeworks. When you come to class, you must change your cell phones to
silent mode. If your cell phone rings during the test, I'll deduct 10%
points from that test score for you. If you are more than ten minutes late,
please try not to disrupt the class. I'll penalize you by one letter grade
for habitually coming late to class (more than five times I notice you
coming late or leaving early). Attendance in presentations by other
students will be graded.
The grade will be based on programming projects, a test, and a presentation
of current research in the field. I'll expect each of you to select a topic
in computer graphics, image processing, computer vision, or multimedia, and
present current research on the topic. You should search journals, or
recent proceedings from
, Eurographics, or CVPR conferences, select at least one paper
from within the past five years and present the paper in class. I'll also
like to see an implementation of the ideas in the paper as well as a written
report. If needed, I may allow two persons to combine their implementation
of a topic. The distribution of grades will be as follows:
The test will be held on April 05, 2017. The deadline for approval of topic
for research is February 17, 2017. You can also look at Google Scholar for papers. Anyone desiring an
EXC grade after March 31, 2017 must be passing the course at that point to
Failure to hand in any assignment will result in an automatic zero for that
Use hoare for your projects. Your account from last semester should still
be active. You can communicate with all the students in the class using
MyGateway. I'll make the lecture notes and your project reports available
on the class web site.
