MM 803 - Image and Video Processing

★ 3 (fi 6)(VAR, VARIABLE)

Quality assessment of image and video (or 3D data) is essential in many applications, which deliver educational content, medical images, games, movies, video-on-demand and so on. In order to generate high quality image and video, especially given the sheer volume of consumer demand and under constrained resources, e.g., time and bandwidth, it is necessary to understand the image and video processing pipeline from the initial creation limitations to the final display at the receiver. This course focuses on reviewing various image/video processing techniques, as well as the quality assessment metrics proposed in the literature. Sections offered at an increased rate of fee assessment; refer to the Tuition and Fees page in the University Regulations sections of the Calendar.

MM 806 - Virtual Reality and Tele-Presence

★ 3 (fi 6)(VAR, VARIABLE)

Virtual reality and augmented reality can provide an immersive environment where many scenarios can be simulated. For example, manufacturing and engineering tasks, medical planning and training, art and design, rehabilitation, Physics, Biology and Chemistry concept exploration and many others can benefit from a virtual reality environment . This course focuses on the challenges of setting up a user friendly virtual reality scene where users can interact in an intuitive and natural way. The use of interactive techniques and sensor-based devices, such as haptic and head-mount display, in creating a virtual environment for scientific analysis, visualization exploration and Tele-presence, as well as how mobile users can participate in these applications, will be discussed. Sections offered at an increased rate of fee assessment; refer to the Tuition and Fees page in the University Regulations sections of the Calendar.
