This course will be conducted in online mode.

We received an overwhelming response and got around 300 registrations. It was not possible to accommodate all, hence shortlisting was carried out based on the research interests of the participants. Preference was given to those whose research interest was aligned with the theme of the STC. We were also unable to consider a few participants who did not upload the required documents. Our sincere apologies to those who could not be accommodated.

All the shortlisted participants have been intimated.

Tentative schedule

The course comprises of lecture and tutorial sessions where each day will have three sessions of one and half hour duration each. Session-1 will be from 10:30AM-12:00PM, Session-2 will be from 12:00-1:30PM, and Session-3 will run from 3:00-4:30PM. The last day will have a test and a feedback session. A lecture on National Education Policy 2020 will also conducted in during the course.

Tentative Topics to be Covered in the Course

The course will cover traditional as well as neural networks and deep learning based methods for computer vision. Application areas such as Image Classification, Object Detection and Recognition, Biometric Recognition etc. will be discussed. The course will cover deep learning architectures such as CNN, R-CNN etc. A few tutorial sessions be conducted involving programming using Python and Matlab. Tentative topics to be covered are as follows.

How will this short- term course benefit teachers?

Computer Vision is a subset of mainstream artificial intelligence. Due to huge applications of artificial intelligence in solving day to day life problems, it has gained tremendous importance in developing technologies where computer needs to see the surroundings and take decisions accordingly. The computer vision combines theory and technology for building of artificial systems for image interpretation or multi-dimensional data. This course will enable participants to learn basics as well as advanced topics necessary for developing vision based artificial systems.

Intended Participants (Who can attend?)

The teachers of the AICTE approved engineering colleges are eligible to attend this course under this scheme without paying any fee. Faculty members from the streams such as Computer Science, Information Technology and Electrical / Electronics & Communication Engineering and other related streams can apply under this program. The seats are limited, which would be filled on first come first serve basis and the candidate’s field of research interest.
Participants other than teachers of AICTE approved colleges (students and participants from industry etc.) can also attend the course by paying a fee.

Selection Procedure

Seats are limited and will be filled based on the matching research interests of the applicants on First-Cum-First-Serve basis. Fee paid will be refunded in case a candidate is not shortlisted for the course.
