The course content will change from year to year depending on lecturer availability. Lecturers are drawn from the Computer Vision and Robotics and Systems and Control groups at the ANU including international academic visitors to these groups.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Students will be able to demonstrate critical analysis of research and publications in an advanced specialist topic of current interest in mechatronics, and the current boundaries of knowledge and predominant research streams that are extending them.
Professional Skills Mapping
Mapping of Learning Outcomes to Assessment and Professional Competencies
The course will describe the theory and practice of deep Neural Networks, otherwise known as Deep Learning, wtih a particular emphasis on their use in Image Processing and Computer Vision. Topics will include:
1. The theory of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs). The Universal Approximation Theorem.
2. Theory of training a CNN, particularly the theory of Back Propagation and Stochastic Gradient Descent.
3. Introduction to commonly used software for training and running CNNs, including in particular Matconvnet, a commonly used Matlab-based tool for Deep Learning.
4. The course will be heavily practically oriented. Students will be expected to have adequate programming and software skills. A major part of the evaluation will be a final project, in which students are expected to obtain a dataset, train and run a CNN, related to an image-processing task.
Indicative AssessmentAssessment will be based on a combination of assignments, tutorials, labs and exams. Distribution of marks between assessment tasks will be determined by the course convener with details provided in the course outline at the start of semester.
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
WorkloadWill vary depending on specific topics.
