Special Topics in Vision: Texture and Image Statistics
Wednesdays from 4:00 to 5:30Location: NE20-445
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.
