Summary (in Polish)

Wykład obejmuje teorię i zastosowania adaptacyjnych technik przetwarzania obrazów, analizy obrazów i rozpoznawania wzorców do detekcji, klasyfikacji i indeksowania obiektów w obrazie. Prezentowane są algorytmy ekstrakcji cech wykorzystujące informacje o kolorze, teksturze, ruchu i kształcie obiektów. Dyskutowane są podstawowe techniki analizy dyskryminacyjnej i techniki lokalizacji obiektów. Projekty dotyczą generycznych aplikacji, takich jak: rozpoznawanie twarzy, detekcja w obrazie tablicy rejestracyjnej samochodu, rozpoznawanie cyfr, segmentacja słów oraz wyszukiwanie obrazów na podstawie deskryptorów koloru określonych w standardzie MPEG-7.

Adaptive image recognition course includes topics on theory and applications of adaptive image processing, image analysis, and pattern recognition methods for image object detection, classification, and indexing. There are presented feature extraction algorithms based on colour, texture, motion, and shape information. Several fundamental techniques for pattern discrimination and localisation are discussed. Projects refer to generic applications: face recognition, number plate detection, digit recognition, word segmentation, and image search by its MPEG-7 colour descriptors.
