Click on a CVML Web Lecture Module to see its content description and sample material of each of its lectures. Lecture materials are: ppt/pdf, video, questionnaires that allow you to study at your own pace.

Each CVML Web Lecture Module provides an overview and an in-depth presentation of a scientific topic. Their union covers most topics in an MSc program on Computer Vision, Machine Learning and Autonomous Systems.

An asynchronous CVML Web Course consists of one or more CVML Web Lecture Modules, typically totaling up to 16 1-hour lectures each. It corresponds to the material typically taught in a) a 1-semester MSc or senior undergraduate course or b) a CVML (live) short e-course.

Each student can choose appropriate CVML Web Lecture Modules to form a CVML Web Courses of his/her choice, each totaling up to 16 lectures or more in case one module has more than 16 lectures. See popular choices under REGISTRATION.

You can also self-assess your CVML knowledge by filling appropriate questionnaires (one per lecture) and you will be provided programming exercises to improve your CV programming skills.
