ORGANIZER:     Computer Vision Centre, Barcelona, Spain

CONTENT AND ORGANIZATION:  Written information in the world around us is a
fundamental cue for a multitude of everyday tasks. From shopping at the
supermarket to finding our destination in an unknown urban space, written
text helps us perform many tasks that would otherwise be much more complex.

Computer vision systems on the other hand, have been practically illiterate
for the first half century of their lifetime. Specific research on reading
systems has been going on for decades, but the semantic information that
image text conveys was not incorporated to higher-level computer vision
tasks until very recently. This is gradually changing, afforded by the great
success achieved in the field of scene text recognition in recent years.

Through this short interactive course, doctoral students will have a chance
to reconcile with the state of the art in reading systems, especially scene
text recognition, and explore how image text enables us to tackle new and
exciting computer vision tasks such as fine-grained image classification,
cross-modal retrieval, captioning and visual question answering..
