Dear Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks engineers, scientists and


you are welcomed to register in the  CVML Short e-course on 'Deep Learning
and Computer Vision',  23-24th August 2021:


It will take place as a two-day e-course (due to COVID-19 circumstances),
hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki,
Greece, providing a series of live lectures 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 6th edition of this course is part of the very successful CVML short
course series that took place in the last four years. 


Course description 'Deep Learning and Computer Vision'

The short e-course consists of 16 1-hour live lectures organized in two
Parts (1 Part per day):

Part A lectures (8 hours) provide an in-depth presentation to autonomous
systems imaging and the relevant architectures as well as a solid background
on the necessary topics of computer vision (Image acquisition, camera
geometry, Stereo and Multiview imaging, Mapping and Localization) and
machine learning (Introduction to neural networks, Perceptron,
backpropagation, Deep neural networks, Convolutional NNs).

Part B lectures (8 hours) provide in-depth views of the various topics
encountered in autonomous systems perception, ranging from vehicle
localization and mapping, to Neural SLAM, target detection and tracking.
Part B also contains application-oriented lectures on autonomous drones,
cars and marine vessels, e.g., drone mission planning for cinematography and
related applications (marine surveillance, infrastructure/building
inspection, car vision).
