General Information

CS377S has three types of coursework requirements.

Readings: Readings are assigned to correspond to each lecture topic. Students should complete the readings before lecture and be prepared to participate in class discussion of the readings.

Individual Assignments: Three individual assignments are required during the first half of the quarter. Each of these assignments has a written portion and an implementation portion. The written portions involve reflection and idea generation based on the assigned readings. The implementation portions are mini-projects that allow students to become familiar with various computer vision tools and techniques.

Project Assignments: During the second half of the quarter, students will form project teams and build a working prototype of a computer vision-based interactive system. This five-week design project includes four milestones: an initial written project proposal, two intermediate checkpoints, and a final presentation and written report.


All assignments are due in class on the date specified.
