582450 Modelling of Vision (5 cr, 3 old credits)A lecture course in English, spring 2008
OverviewThe topics are mechanisms and modelling of human perception. The emphasis is on modelling of visual feature extraction, and modelling of object and scene recognition. The course is most suitable to students specializing in bioinformatics, neuroinformatics, or intelligent systems
LecturersDoc. Aapo Hyvärinen (UH) and Prof. Jouko Lampinen (TKK)
The course will be given in collaboration with Helsinki University of Technology (TKK). Course home page at TKK
The first half (six lectures) is given by Aapo Hyvärinen at University of Helsinki, Kumpula Campus, Exactum building, lecture room C222. See here for directions on how to get there.

The rest of the lectures will be given at TKK in period IV, see the course home page at TKK for exact schedule and travel directions for the second half.
PrerequisitesBasic courses in calculus, probability, and linear algebra. Fundamentals of Fourier analysis and human vision are recommended, but background material on these will be distributed and briefly reviewed in the lectures.
Course materialYou need a username and password (available from the lecturers) to access the course material page for the 1st half. The username and password are the same for the TKK pages on the 2nd half.
What you need to do to get the credits
ExaminationThere is a single test for the whole course, see course home page at TKK for information.
Practical worksYou also need to do two practical works: one for the first half and one for the second half.
Please register to the course using the registration system of your home university. For students of the University of Helsinki, this means the Ilmo system. For students of TKK, this means the wwwTopi system. If none of these is possible, register by e-mail to the lecturer of your home university.
Here's list of neuroinformatics courses in the Helsinki area (in Finnish).
The contact person for the first half is Aapo Hyvärinen.
For more general questions, the contact person is Jouko Lampinen.
