Course has been adjusted for remote participation in 2021. Some on-campus activities are available. Attendance at these where possible is encouraged.

The course will describe the theory and practice of deep Neural Networks, otherwise known as Deep Learning, with a particular emphasis on their use in Image Processing and Computer Vision.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Describe and apply the theory of convolutional neural networks and the universal approximation theorem.
  2. Apply the theory of training a convolutional neural network.
  3. Write programs to design, train and test neural networks to solve problems in computer vision.
  4. Competently apply programming and software tools to write programs to solve realistic problems of computer vision using deep neural networks.
  5. Understand the principals of testing and evaluating the performance of deep neural networks, and apply these principals in practice.
  6. Research an area of computer vision and apply deep neural network methods to a problem in that area.
