Fall 2004


Special Topics in Vision: Texture and Image Statistics
Time: Wednesdays from 4:00 to 5:30
Location: NE20-445
Prof. Edward Adelson and Prof. Aude Oliva

This year we will study, in depth, two or three papers that describe models for the analysis or synthesis of texture and other statistical aspects of images. The idea is to take apart the algorithms to understand the issues in vision that the authors confronted and the decisions they made. We will modify the algorithms to understand how they can be pushed in other directions. One example will be Portilla and Simoncelli (Int. Jnl. Comp. Vis., 2000), for which Matlab code is available. Students should have a basic knowledge of Matlab, signal processing, and human and machine vision.
