|252-0206-00L||Visual Computing||8 credits||4V + 3U||M. Pollefeys, S. Coros|
|Abstract||This course acquaints students with core knowledge in computer graphics, image processing, multimedia and computer vision. Topics include: Graphics pipeline, perception and camera models, transformation, shading, global illumination, texturing, sampling, filtering, image representations, image and video compression, edge detection and optical flow.|
|Objective||This course provides an in-depth introduction to the core concepts of computer graphics, image processing, multimedia and computer vision. The course forms a basis for the specialization track Visual Computing of the CS master program at ETH.|
|Content||Course topics will include: Graphics pipeline, perception and color models, camera models, transformations and projection, projections, lighting, shading, global illumination, texturing, sampling theorem, Fourier transforms, image representations, convolution, linear filtering, diffusion, nonlinear filtering, edge detection, optical flow, image and video compression.|
In theoretical and practical homework assignments students will learn to apply and implement the presented concepts and algorithms.
|Lecture notes||A scriptum will be handed out for a part of the course. Copies of the slides will be available for download. We will also provide a detailed list of references and textbooks.|

Number of participants limited to 24.
The deadline for deregistering expires at the end of the second week of the semester. Students who are still registered after that date, but do not attend the seminar, will officially fail the seminar.
|2 credits||2S||M. Gross, M. Pollefeys, O. Sorkine Hornung|
|Abstract||This seminar covers advanced topics in computer graphics, such as modeling, rendering, animation, real-time graphics, physical simulation, and computational photography. Each time the course is offered, a collection of research papers is selected and each student presents one paper to the class and leads a discussion about the paper and related topics.|
|Objective||The goal is to get an in-depth understanding of actual problems and research topics in the field of computer graphics as well as improve presentations and critical analysis skills.|
|Content||This seminar covers advanced topics in computer graphics,|
including both seminal research papers as well as the latest
research results. Each time the course is offered, a collection of
research papers are selected covering topics such as modeling,
rendering, animation, real-time graphics, physical simulation, and
computational photography. Each student presents one paper to the
class and leads a discussion about the paper and related topics.
All students read the papers and participate in the discussion.
|Lecture notes||no script|
|Literature||Individual research papers are selected each term. See http://graphics.ethz.ch/ for the current list.|
|263-5902-00L||Computer Vision||7 credits||3V + 1U + 2A||M. Pollefeys, V. Ferrari, L. Van Gool|
|Abstract||The goal of this course is to provide students with a good understanding of computer vision and image analysis techniques. The main concepts and techniques will be studied in depth and practical algorithms and approaches will be discussed and explored through the exercises.|
|Objective||The objectives of this course are:|
1. To introduce the fundamental problems of computer vision.
2. To introduce the main concepts and techniques used to solve those.
3. To enable participants to implement solutions for reasonably complex problems.
4. To enable participants to make sense of the computer vision literature.
|Content||Camera models and calibration, invariant features, Multiple-view geometry, Model fitting, Stereo Matching, Segmentation, 2D Shape matching, Shape from Silhouettes, Optical flow, Structure from motion, Tracking, Object recognition, Object category recognition|
|Prerequisites / Notice||It is recommended that students have taken the Visual Computing lecture or a similar course introducing basic image processing concepts before taking this course.|
