61144 Digital Image Processing

Course Description

Digital image processing is the technology that allows scientists to manipulate images in order to bring out features and properties that had been previously difficult or impossible to perceive. Image processing combines high technology, information theory, and cognitive issues in a way which is nothing short of spectacular; this course presents fundamental concepts of digital image processing: image formation, image transform theory and applications, enhancement, restoration, segmentation, encoding and compression.
