This course provides an introduction to basic concepts, methodologies and algorithms of digital image processing focusing on the following two major problems concerned with digital images: (1) image enhancement and restoration for easier interpretation of images, and (2) image analysis and object recognition. Some advanced image processing techniques (e.g., wavelet and multiresolution processing) will also be studied in this course. The primary goal of this course is to lay a solid foundation for students to study advanced image analysis topics such as computer vision systems, biomedical image analysis, and multimedia processing & retrieval.
Understand basic components of digital image processing “DIP” with the following issues:
Give the students a general understanding of the fundamentals of digital image processing.
Introduce the student to analytical tools which are currently used in digital image processing as applied to image information for human viewing.
Develop the ability of students to apply these tools in the laboratory in image restoration, enhancement and compression.
