Seminar Computer Vision [SemCV]

This seminar discusses individual algorithms and applications of computer vision. The goal of this seminar is to introduce students to selected aspects of computer vision. In this term, we will cover algorithms for 2.5D scene analysis, forgery detection for video sequences and potentially other current research topics.

Learning Objectives

  • Perform literature research based on a given scientific article
  • Independently study the topic based on the found literature
  • Develop a good understanding of the algorithm/method and potentially implement it
  • Present the given topic in a manner that is understandable for their peers
  • Give a talk in English and gain language competence


Experience with C++ or C# is expected. Basic knowledge of image processing is desirable. Having visited lectures such as Introduction to Pattern Recognition (IntroPR) or Diagnostic Medical Image Processing (DMIP) might prove beneficial.

In the beginning of the term, there will be an introductory meeting to discuss the organization of the project and for presenting the individual topics.

During the term you will have time to prepare a presentation and your implementation/paper. The final presentations will be held at the end of the term.

The grade consists of two parts: the final presentation of the topic and a seminar paper or an implementation. Each participant can choose between writing a 6 pages seminar paper (IEEE style), or creating an implementation/demonstrator, including a short, informal documentation.
