Dear Machine Learning, Computer Vision and Autonomous Systems engineers,
scientists and enthusiasts,


you are welcomed to register in the CVML Short e-course on Deep Learning and
Computer Vision,  22-23th August 2022: 



Its focus will be on applications in autonomous systems (cars, drones,
marine vessels).


It will take place as a two-day e-course (due to COVID-19 circumstances),
hosted by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki,

It will contain 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 14 1-hour live lectures organized in two
Parts (1 Part per day):

Part A lectures (7 hours) provide a solid background on the foundational
Computer Vision  topics and an in-depth presentation to Autonomous Systems
vision and the relevant architectures (Camera geometry, Stereo and Multiview
imaging, Introduction to multiple drone systems,  Simultaneous Localization
and Mapping, Drone mission planning and control, Introduction to autonomous
marine vehicles).

Part B lectures (7 hours) provide an in-depth  presentation of various Deep
Learning topics (Multilayer Perceptron, Backpropagation, Deep Neural
Networks, Convolutional NNs, Deep Object Detection, 2D Visual Object
Tracking, Neural Slam) encountered in autonomous systems perception, ranging
from vehicle localization and mapping, to target detection and tracking. 


Parts A, B also contain application-oriented lectures on autonomous systems
embedded CPU/GPU computing and related SW tools that can be used in a wide
range of applications, e.g., for land/marine surveillance, search&rescue
missions, infrastructure/building inspection and modeling, cinematography.
