Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


A camera observes its environment. To reconstruct from images or image sequences an internal representation of the three dimensional dynamic world is an extremely underdetermined problem. Additional knowledge about the world is mandatory for the solution. To seperate content and processing this knowledge is preferably formulated as declarative knowledge, represented as a model. Topics of the lecture are:

- priniples of model based systems
- overview of applications in research, medicine, industry ...
- levels of knowledge abstraction
- knowledge representation and models
- inference methods
- iconic, symbolic, and semantic models
- exemplary systems and current research

Learning Outcome

It is a challenging problem to reconstruct from images or image sequences an internal representation of the three dimensional dynamic world, which a camera observes. To solve this problem models of the real world are constructed and help to compensate the under-determinedness of the reconstruction problem. The students should conceive the role of such models in appoaches to understand the content of images or image sequences. They will study the theory of symbolic and stochastic modelling and will be able to analyse exemplary applications. They should be able to program simple image or image sequence understanding systems.
