Programming Applications in C++

Limited number of participants! Please register by sending an email to: stating your name, student ID number, study program (Studiengang), and semester. Please also state whether you are planning on applying C++ to anything in particular.

Registration period: December 1, 2016 to January 20, 2017.

This course provides a two-week introduction to various established C++ Libraries that are relevant to develop modern graphical applications, and is build on the "Intensive Course C++" which is a requirement for participating. There will be several applications in Neuroinformatics like machine learning, computer vision etc.

Educational objects:
Participants will be able to learn and deepen their knowledge on complex libraries autonomously. There will be a focus on design concepts which will enable students to determine which library to use in terms of use case and target of application.

- Modern view of C++
- Graphical user interface (Qt)
- Database connections
- Network programming
- Multithreading
- Topics of machine learning
- Topics of (real-time) computer vision

The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
