Image Processing and Computer GraphicsProf. Thomas Brox, Dr. Thorsten Falk, Prof. Matthias Teschner
Image Processing and Computer Graphics are fields in computer science which have shown a steady growth in the last two decades. They have impact not only in computer science but also in other research areas, such as biology or medicine. Image processing is quite important in robotics and many industrial applications. Computer graphics dominates the movie theaters. Many tools from mathematics and machine learning influence research in image processing and computer graphics. This makes it a very diverse research field.
This course gives a broad overview of these fields and introduces the basic techniques. It is highly recommended to take this course before attending other classes in computer vision or computer graphics. Consequently, if you think about specializing in these fields, you should take this course as early as possible. The exercises are intended to give you a better understanding of the most important techniques you learn in class. You are supposed to implement some selected methods in C/C++ and develop an intuition of their usage.
