Four programming assignments (60% of the grade) + final project (40% of the grade). Assignments should be submitted using the NYU class site.
- Excercise 1 on camera calibration (zip file). Due on October 1st.
- Excercise 2 on Canny edge detector (zip file). Due on October 22nd.
- Excercise 3 on mean shift (zip file). Due on November 12th.
- Excercise 4 on neural networks (ipynb notebook). Due on December 17th.
- Final project: list of suggested papers is available here. Send an email to Matthew to validate a project. Poster presentations will be on December 17th at 1.30 pm in the 7th floor open space. You should also submit a 1-2 page report by the same date.
Collaboration policy: You can discuss the assignments and final projects with other students in the class. Discussions are encouraged and are an essential component of the academic environment. However, each student has to work out their assignment alone (including any coding, experiments, and derivations) and submit their own report/notebook.

Much of the material for this course relies on the Computer Vision course given at ENS Paris by Mathieu Aubry, Karteek Alahari, Ivan Laptev, and Josef Sivic. Many of the slides are taken from James Hays, Svetlana Lazebnik, and Derek Hoeim.
