Winter Term 2019 / 2020
Lecture with Exercises (2+2SWS)
Language: English

Lecture: Thursday, 15:45 - 17:15, Computer Science Building, Seminar Room 0.108.
Theoretical Exercises: Friday, 11:30 - 13:00, Computer Science Building, Lecture Hall V38.02 (bi-weekly).

Correspondence problems are a central topic in computer vision. The basic task amounts to identifying and matching corresponding features in different images or views of the same scene. Typical examples for correspondence problems are (i) the estimation of motion information from consecutive frames of an image sequence (optic flow), (ii) the reconstruction of a 3-D scene from a stereo image pair, (iii) the registration of medical image data from different image acquisition devices (e.g. CT and MRT), and (iv) the analysis of the motion of fluid flows. The central part of this lecture is concerned with discussing the most important types of correspondence problems together with suitable models and algorithms for solving them.

This class requires undergraduate knowledge in mathematics ("e.g. Mathematik für Informatiker und Softwaretechniker"). Knowledge in image processing or computer vision is useful as well. Also basic knowledge in artificial intelligence can be helpful. The lectures will be given in English.

This class is particularly suited for those students who wish to pursue a master thesis in the CVIS group in the field of computer vision.

All course material (lecture notes, assignments, code, example solutions) are available in the ILIAS system.
