This school would like to be the first of a series of
seminars, aiming at offering advanced lectures on significant topics
related to Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, and Image
The maximum number of participants is limited to 50 persons. In case of a larger number of applicants, priority will be given to PhD students.
This first school focuses on the statistical approach in computer vision, analyzing the graphical models for learning and inference with related applications.
Note for PhD students: we anticipated the possibility of an exam on friday 21 for those requiring a credit, but we decided against. The credit will be appointed upon completion of a given homework in the following weeks.
Bayesian Networks and Algorithms for Inference and Learning: Applications in Computer Vision, Audio Processing, and Molecular Biology
Algorithms for automatically analyzing images, video, audio, communication signals, biological sequences, text, and other types of data should take into account the uncertain relationships between inputs, intermediate representations, and outputs. Probability theory can account for these uncertainties, and provides a way to pose information processing problems as the computational task of finding an appropriate probability model and computing conditional probabilities using the model. Complex probability models for real-world applications often involve millions of random variables and intractable density functions, so probabilities cannot be computed using straightforward approaches.
This course examines the fundamental concepts of graph-based formulations of complex probability models and introduces computationally efficient techniques for computing probabilities and estimating parameters in these models. Although the course is a "fundamentals" course, we will study several impressive real-world applications.
