Dear Deep Learning, Computer Vision, Digital Media 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’,  24-26th August 2022: 



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 programming workshops delivered through a tele-education platform (Zoom). Its focus is on upgrading your programming skills in various Deep Learning and Computer Vision topics. You will be provided programming exercises in Python, CUDA, PyTorch, OpenCV etc to this end. Application focus will be in Digital Media. 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).


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.
