Course Overview and Plan: This seminar will explore the intriguing and often misunderstood field of Computer Vision---automatic computer interpretation of visual data. We will read about and watch various portrayals of core Computer Vision problems in popular culture, such as Robocop and Minority Report. In class, we will discuss these core research problems in light of the readings and videos to allow the students to build a understanding of where the exciting field of Computer Vision is now and where it is going in the future. The main goal of the seminar is to engage young students into computer vision problems: the visual world is complex and yet we humans are so good at parsing it. By the end of the seminar, the students will have an appreciation of the core problems in computer vision as well as a deeper appreciation to the complexities of visual scene understanding. The basic structure of each class is
Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites. The courses assumes a basic high school math and physics background and explores the visible world through the lens of Hollywood movies.
Grading: Per the Discovery Seminar program, grading is letter unless a student specifically request otherwise.
