Mission & Content Summary
MISSION

Data is everywhere and it can be of any kind. Students enrolled in the Business Analytics track of the MSc in Data Science and Business Analytics have learned how to analyze numerical and textual data. This course augments their knowledge by teaching them how to deal with and analyze images. Images play a major role in today's communication, whether is corporate and official one or just a series of posts on Social Media. The course introduces the building blocks of modern Computer Vision algorithms by providing the students with a set of practical skills which can be applied in both the industry and academia.

CONTENT SUMMARY
  • Theoretical understanding of different deep learning model architectures.
  • Software libraries for Computer Vision.
  • Image classification.
  • Object detection.
  • Image segmentation.
  • Versioning software systems like git.

Intended Learning Outcomes (ILO)
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
At the end of the course student will be able to...
  • Describe the main characteristics of a Computer Vision dedicated neural network.
  • Recognize limitations of a given deep learning model.
  • Select the appropriate model for a given Computer Vision task.
APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
At the end of the course student will be able to...
  • Apply Computer Vision methods to solve real-world problems.
  • Analyze, compare, assess the performance, and select the appropriate algorithm.
  • Use relevant software libraries such as OpenCV, Tensorflow, Keras.
  • Design the appropriate workflow to correctly organize, implement, and later manage a Computer Vision project.
  • Develop a proper local and remote repository hosted on dedicated servers like Github.
