What if your smartphone could recognise that it was you before switching on, and could sense your mood by recognising your facial expressions? What if you could use a real thumbs-up for "liking" things on Facebook? How can you play games on an Xbox using only your body gestures? How can you equip cars with in-vehicle technology that could automatically read road signs? These are just some of the fascinating questions that you will strive to answer on this programme.
This programme is intended to respond to a growing skills shortage in research and industry for engineers with a high level of training in the analysis and interpretation of images and video. It covers both low-level image processing and high-level interpretation using state-of-the-art machine learning methodologies. In addition, it offers high-level training in programming languages, tools and methods that are necessary for the design and implementation of practical computer vision systems.
This programme will:
Give you experience of working on cutting-edge, live research projects, gaining hands-on experience.
Provide you with the skills and knowledge that will prepare you for a career either in industry or in further research.
Teach you the theoretical knowledge and practical application of methods in Computer Vision and Image Processing.
Give you programming skills in Matlab or C/C++.
School you in sophisticated data collection and analysis techniques.
