Prerequisites in terms of knowledge

Basics of computer vision technologies

Prerequisites for students in the Data Science programme, in terms of courses

Orientation to Data Science Studies,

Academic Writing for Students in English-Medium Master's Degree Programmes 1

Prerequisites for other students in terms of courses

Recommended preceding courses

The course Computer Vision, DATA20016, or equivalent.

Specialization studies in Data Science, especially in Machine Learning and Stat­ist­ical Data Sci­ence

The student will learn to find and analyze existing scientific literature around a specific topic, write a scientific report and present the results orally.

The student will also learn to act as a peer for the work of others.

It is recommended that the course DATA20016 has been completed before the seminar or good knowledge on computer vision technologies has been acquired with some other means.

The course will be offered in the spring term 2020.

A seminar course giving a deeper insight into the use of computer vision methods in a certain subject area selected by the student.

A list of possible subject areas and some preselected scientific papers will be given at the course homepage.

Students may select the subject area also based on their interest outside the given topics.

The students will agree upon a specific topic with the instructor, write a scientific report, deliver a scientific oral presentation on the topic and act as a peer.

The students are expected to participate actively in the seminar sessions.

Grading scale 1-5. The grading will combine evaluation of the written report, the oral presentation and other course participation.

Contact teaching.

Attendance at the seminar sessions is obligatory. Absence from at most two meetings is accepted, but will affect grading.
