The course is about bio-inspired signal processing, the human visual system, linear and non-linear systems as well as high-level functions in human visual processing. The course is offered every summer semester.
The goal of this course is to get an overview of the human visual system, to learn classical signal processing and machine vision techniques and to finally relate both fields.
