The goal Introducing students to modern system components and concepts of digital image/picture processing.
The outcome Empowering of the students to use known methods for digital image processing and to create and develop new practical algorithms, as well as computer codes for the processing.
Contents of lectures Sensors and image acquisition in modern systems. Basic and advanced image processing in spatial and transform domain. Features. Modern methods for segmentation and classification in image. Compression principles, transmission and image quality. Satellite, medical, multispectral image processing systems. Decision making and machine learning in image processing. Image processing in smart systems.
Contents of exercises Auditory exercises following the lectures. Exercises in a computer lab where the processing is performed using libraries and tools for image processing and computer vision.
