Course detail


FEKT-MROZAcad. year: 2018/2019

The course Recognition engages in methods of objects segmentation, detection and description of interest points and regions, classification and categorization, learning in recognition and multiimage reconstruction.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Graduate of the course is able to analyse a recognition task of computer vision, to design and implement solution of it and to perform meaningful verification of a result.


The knowledge on the level of the Bachelor's degree is required in the Recognition course. Moreover, knowledge and skills equivalent to the MPOV / LPOV course are required.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods include lectures and a group project. Course is taking advantage of the e-learning (Midas) system.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

A group project (40 pts) and a final exam (60 pts) are evaluated during the Recognition course. For successful pass the course, obtaining of at least half of available points is required in both mentioned parts.
