PG Diploma in Computer Vision

Universidad Católica de Murcia (UCAM)

Computer vision is one of the most widely studied sub-fields of computer science.

It has several important applications, such as face detection, image searching, artistic image conversion and with the popularity of deep learning methods, many recent applications of computer vision are in self-driving cars, robotics, medicine, virtual reality and augmented reality.

Sometimes computer vision tries to mimic human vision and uses data & statistical approaches or uses geometry to solve real-world problems.

Program Overview

Computer vision contains a mix of programming, modeling, mathematics and is sometimes difficult to grasp so Airtics has designed this course to give a practical approach of learning computer vision with enough understanding of underlying theory, programming and algorithms to help in building stronger computer vision fundamentals. This course teaches how to create computer vision applications using standard tools such as OpenCV, Keras and TensorFlow. The various concepts taught in this course can be used across several domains from image editing apps to self-driving cars.
