Canvas Walk-In Consultation (No Appointment Necessary)

Do you want to learn about Canvas, the new learning management system that has replaced Chalk? Do you want to see how Canvas can enhance engagement with your students? Do you want to see new features which can facilitate teaching and learning, and make grading more efficient? Stop by the TechBar and chat with ATS staff during our walk-in hours to experience Canvas. We will explore the differences between Chalk and Canvas and review the features that Canvas offers. Also, we are happy to discuss strategies for using Canvas in your classroom. Pre-requisite: Open to all faculty, instructors, teaching assistants, and graduate students.

Introduction to Computer Vision in Python

Abstract: This workshop provides an introduction to computer vision (CV), fundamentals of image formation, imaging geometry, feature detection and matching, multiview geometry including stereo, motion estimation and tracking, and classification. This workshop will cover basic algorithms for applications that include finding known models in images, depth recovery from stereo, camera calibration, image stabilization, automated alignment (e.g. panoramas), tracking, and action recognition. We will focus less on the machine learning aspect of CV as that is really classification theory best learned in an ML course. In this workshop you will not, for the most part, apply high-level library functions but use low to mid level algorithms to analyze images and extract structural information.

Objectives:

1) Learn about concepts such as filtering, linearity and convolution, edge detectors

2) Analyze images in Fourier domain and apply convolution in frequency domain

3) Compute features in an image and how to match them

4) Learn about perspective imaging and stereo geometry

5) Learn video processing, object, and action recognition, and tracking

6) Write your own code of the algorithms we will be learning

Level: Intermediate

Duration: 4 hours

Prerequisites: All participants are expected to bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system that they have administrative privileges on, and Python and Jupyter Notebooks are already installed. Participants should have a basic command of Linux and basic programming skills using Python with Jupyter Notebook.
