Knowledge and understanding: The course focuses on methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing, and understanding images.

Ability to apply knowledge and understanding: the student will be able to implement specific modules of a computer vision system. To this end during the course will be used several computer vision libraries.

Making judgements: Through concrete examples and case studies, the student will be able to select independently the algorithms to be used for a specific computer vision problem and make the tuning of the involved parameters.

Communication skills: the student will acquire technical communication skills related to computer vision field.

Ability to learn independently: starting from the basic concepts provided in the course, the student will be able to learn advanced computer vision techniques.


Linear algebra, basic calculus, basic probability.
Programming skills (Matlab)


Image Formation and Camera Calibration
Edge Detection, Lines, Hough transform
Interest Point Detection
Scale Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT)
Bag of Visual Words
Local Binary Pattern (LBP)
Face Recognition
Deep Learning for Computer Vision

Teaching Methods

Frontal lectures and exercises

Verification of learning

The final grade is computed as weighted average of:

-oral exam related to the methods for acquiring, processing, analyzing, and understanding images (2/3);

-implementation of a computer vision algorithm (1/3).
