This post is for Computer vision enthusiasts. We are highlighting the focal point of resources and computer vision tutorials for all CV aficionados and get themselves started in this emerging field. As a passionate beginner in the field of computer vision, we hope you find this useful.
Some prior knowledge about linear algebra, calculus, probability and statistics would definitely be a plus but its not always required. The most important thing is to get started and you can learn other essential things on the fly.
- Computer Vision – Mubarak Shah (UCF) : All the materials related to the course are available online and what is more interesting is that even the video lectures are available.
- Computer Vision – Subhransu Maji (UMass Amherst) : Provides access to all the lecture materials and assignments but there are no video lectures.
- Visual Recognition – Kristen Grauman (UT Austin) : This Provides links to some of the interesting and fundamental papers in computer vision.
- Language and Vision – Tamara Berg (UNC Chapel Hill) : This course is basically aimed towards exploring topics straddling the boundary between Natural Language Processing and Computer Vision.
- Convolutional Neural Networks for Visual Recognition – Fei-Fei Li and Andrej Karpathy (Stanford University) : This course is a deep dive into details of the deep learning architectures with a focus on learning end-to-end models for computer vision tasks with a main focus on image classification.
Some additional resources:
- Computer Vision: A Modern Approach (2nd edition) – David Forsyth and Jean Ponce 2011
- Computer Vision: Models, Learning, and Inference – Simon J. D. Prince 2012
- Computer Vision: Theory and Application – Rick Szeliski 20
In addition to this, it is very useful to be aware of most of the basic image processing techniques presented in this book Digital Image Processing – Gonzalez 2007
- Practical Python and OpenCV – Adrian Rosebrock
- OpenCV Essentials – Oscar Deniz Suarez, Mª del Milagro Fernandez Carrobles, Noelia Vallez Enano, Gloria Bueno Garcia, Ismael Serrano Gracia
- Learning OpenCV Computer Vision with the OpenCV Library – Gary Bradski and Adrian Kaehler
You can find an exhaustive list of links presenting code which implements some of the standard vision algorithms at http://www.cvpapers.com/rr.html
Below are some of the major conferences listed in their ranking order.
- CVPR – Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition
- ICCV – International Conference on Computer Vision
- ECCV – European Conference on Computer Vision
- WACV – Workshop on Applications of Computer Vision
- BMVC – British Machine Vision Conference
Most of the papers published in the above mentioned conferences can be accessed at http://www.cvpapers.com/index.html
Nice way to keep track of the conferences deadline is via http://conferences.visionbib.com/Iris-Conferences.html
