Objectives

At the end of the module students should be able to:
- explain the basic elements and concepts of digital images processing;
- describe the hardware components and computer architectures being used in image processing;
- explain and apply different ways of recovering information from images and minimising noise;
- discuss and apply various image compression algorithms;
- describe and apply the basic techniques of statistical decision making and pattern recognition.
