About the Course

In this class you will learn the basic principles and tools used to process images and videos, and how to apply them in solving practical problems of commercial and scientific interests. Digital images and videos are everywhere these days – in thousands of scientific (e.g., astronomical, bio-medical), consumer, industrial, and artistic applications. Moreover they come in a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum - from visible light and infrared to gamma rays and beyond. The ability to process image and video signals is therefore an incredibly important skill to master for engineering/science students, software developers, and practicing scientists. Digital image and video processing continues to enable the multimedia technology revolution we are experiencing today. Some important examples of image and video processing include the removal of degradations images suffer during acquisition (e.g., removing blur from a picture of a fast moving car), and the compression and transmission of images and videos (if you watch videos online, or share photos via a social media website, you use this everyday!), for economical storage and efficient transmission. This course will cover the fundamentals of image and video processing. We will provide a mathematical framework to describe and analyze images and videos as two- and three-dimensional signals in the spatial, spatio-temporal, and frequency domains. In this class not only will you learn the theory behind fundamental processing tasks including image/video enhancement, recovery, and compression - but you will also learn how to perform these key processing tasks in practice using state-of-the-art techniques and tools. We will introduce and use a wide variety of such tools – from optimization toolboxes to statistical techniques. Emphasis on the special role sparsity plays in modern image and video processing will also be given. In all cases, example images and videos pertaining to specific application domains will be utilized....

it's a good material and nice professor, but sometimes the material is rather theoretical. Some lessons are very heavy with details and very basic practice excercises. I was missing deeper excercises that cover more of the studied material

This course is great for getting an overview of Digital Image Processing.

Some more homework coding practice assignment can be added for getting for intuitive learning experience.

Overall it is awesome for a starting point.

Quite allright for an introductory course to image processing! But to really understand the course, one needs to have experience in basic DSP and statistics. Otherwise, many of material won't be as clear.

Highly relevant and comprehensive, covering important information in the field. Can be improved however by incorporating code using other language libraries besides MATLAB (e.g. Python, etc).

Accent was a bit hard to understand for me, I used google to study separate topics and then gave assignments. Helpful as a guide to direct you what all to study in the space.

Wonderful course....The mentor is knowledgable....the only drawback I find is it we dont find the answers to the assignment questions even after passing it.

A lot of materials and useful information, but some part gets a little overwhelming. Would also like to see image registration explained more.

I think the teacher should speak more clearly, he has a strong accent, however, the materials and contents in this lessons are pretty good.

One or two lecture should be there for Optimization and Regularization. I enjoyed the course and it was useful and very informative.

I cannot understand what the teacher says because of the accent, in the first time I thought it's not a problem but actually I was.

I felt that the course was rushed a bit too fast. Some parts are quite vague and hard to understand.

Quite a good course. I just wished a free programming language being used in place of Matlab.
