From self-driving cars and augmented reality to intelligent medical imaging helping doctors identify diseases more quickly, computer vision is a rapidly-growing field within artificial intelligence and machine learning. In this course, students who are already familiar with the key theoretical foundations of artificial intelligence and machine learning will dive deeper into the exciting capabilities of this area of research and its applications.

You will begin with computer vision algorithms for classification, recognition, detection, and their implementation in deep learning libraries, before exploring autoencoders and variational autoencoders, and gaining insights into the training and application of generative adversarial networks. You will proceed to an in-depth examination of diffusion models, including score-based diffusion models, latent diffusion models, and Stable Diffusion. The final part of the course explores even more advanced topics, including the representation of 3D objects, vision transformers, video classification, and text to image generation.

This intensive course offers students theoretical understanding and practical experience in a range of advanced computer vision concepts and techniques, offering career skills as well as excellent foundations for future research.
