Vision in Man and Machine

This lecture treats aspects of vision from the computer science, psychophysics, and neurobiological point of view. Starting from a phenomenology of human vision, biological and psychological basics, the foundations of image processing are developed, finally leading to more advanced concepts like multi-scale and wavelet analysis, and algorithms for face and object recognition.

The lecture is suited for students of computer science, biology, physics, engineering, and psychology.

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.
