Course Syllabus


This online course offers an introduction to the main tasks of 3D computer vision. We discuss both classical algorithms and modern neural network approaches. Students will get familiar with the theoretical description of the methods and obtain hands-on experience with practical tasks. Everyone who has been introduced to 2D computer vision and wants to extend their knowledge to the 3D world will be interested in this course.
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • The aim of this online course is to introduce students to 3D computer vision algorithms. Students will work with classic approaches and deep learning models for depth estimation and processing point clouds, understanding scene geometry for augmented reality and implementing vision perception for self-driving cars. Both core theory related to 3D computer vision and practical skills will be presented through the course in order to give students a solid background for using learned material in the future.
