ELEC70073 Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition

Lecturer(s): Prof Krystian Mikolajczyk; Dr Adam Spiers


The module focuses on application areas of the machine learning tools namely Computer Vision, Robotics and general Patter Recognition. Computer Vision is a field concerned with visual data captured by cameras, while Robotics and Pattern Recognition offer techniques for processing data from diverse types of sensors. Data and signal processing techniques from these two fields are closely related and enable us to automatically extract information so as to solve predictive and decision based tasks. The module also focuses on Compute Vision and Pattern Recognition tasks and methods, and illustrates how these technologies can impact the practical design of intelligent signal analysis.
