It will take place at KEDEA Building, hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece. The course provides an in-depth presentation of programming tools and techniques for various computer vision and deep learning problems. The target application domains are autonomous systems (e.g., real time object detection) and digital/social media analysis for Natural Disaster Management. The short course consists of three parts (A, B, C), each having lectures and programming workshops with hands-on lab exercises. There will be complemented lecture pdfs, to enable you to study at your own pace. You can also self-assess your knowledge, by filling appropriate questionnaires (one per lecture).
This course is part of the very successful CVML programming short course and workshop series that has been taking place in the last four years.
Course description ‘Programming short course and workshop on Deep Learning and Computer Vision’
The short course consists of three parts (A, B, C), each having lectures and programming workshops with hands-on lab exercises.
Part A will focus on Deep Learning and GPU programming. The lectures of this part provide a solid background on Deep Neural Networks (DNN) topics, notably convolutional NNs (CNNs) and deep learning for image classification.
Part B lectures will focus on deep learning algorithms for Perception on Autonomous Systems, namely on 2D object/face detection and 2D object tracking.
Part C lectures will focus on Autonomous Systems in Natural Disaster Management (NDM). The lectures will provide a basic understanding of Real-Time Image Segmentation algorithms.
