Deep Learning in Computer Vision

Third semester: UB, Bordeaux
Class Type
Lecture, Practical
Type of the exam
Final Exam, Practical works
Prerequisites (if exist)
Basic image processing algorithms, Programming in C++
Dr. Jenny Benois-Pineau, Full Professor
Hours per week


The course is devoted to the methods of supervised learning applied in computer vision and in particular to the innovative group of methods, such as Deep Learning. During the course various aspects of Deep learning will be covered. The fundamentals in neural networks such as MLP will be presented. Then, the focus will be on the variety of convolutional neural networks and associated problems, such design of architectures, data preparation, optimization methods, fine tuning/domain adaptation and fusion with Deep architectures. The temporality aspects will also be considered for various computer vision, CBIR and CVIR applications. In practical work students will acquire skills for the use of optimal network configurations accordingly to the available OpenSource frameworks
