Dear Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks engineers, scientists and enthusiasts,
you are welcomed to register in the CVML e-course on ‘Programming short course and workshop on Deep Learning and Computer Vision’, 25-27th August 2021:
It will take place as a three-day e-course (due to COVID-19 circumstances), hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece, providing a series of live lectures and workshops delivered through a tele-education platform (Zoom). They will be complemented with on-line video recorded lectures and lecture pdfs, to facilitate international participants having time difference issues and to enable you to study at own pace. You can also self-assess your knowledge, by filling appropriate questionnaires (one per lecture). You will be provided programming to improve your programming skills. You will also have accesses to tutorial exercises to better your theoretical understanding of selected CVML topics.
This course is part of the very successful CVML programming short course and workshop series that took place in the last four years.
Course description ‘Programming short course and workshop on Deep Learning and Computer Vision’
The programming short course and workshop e-course consists of 16 1-hour live lectures & workshops organized in two Parts (1 Part per day):
Part A will focus on Deep Learning and GPU programming.
Part B lectures will focus on deep learning algorithms for computer vision, namely on 2D object/face detection and 2D object tracking.
Part C lectures will focus on autonomous UAV cinematography. Before mission execution, it is best simulated, using drone mission simulation tools.
Part A (8 hours),
Deep Learning and GPU programming
Deep neural networks. Convolutional NNs.
Deep learning for target detection.
Image classification with CNNs.
Target detection with PyTorch.
Part B (8 hours), Deep Learning for Computer Vision
Deep learning for object/face detection.
2D object tracking.
PyTorch: Understand the core functionalities of an object detector. Training and deployment.
OpenCV programming for object tracking.
Part C (8 hours), Autonomous UAV cinematography
Video summarization with Pytorch.
Drone cinematography with Airsim.
