The student should be fluent in C/C++ programming.
Multimedia systems is a wide and diverse area. In this course we focus on the scientific view of multimedia systems as presented in top major conferences and journals and we provide advice, support and guidance for a final project that will be distributed (or placed online) to the public.
The intention is to focus on current research trends such as social computing, speech recognition, robotics, and computer vision and gain insight into what is novel from a modern scientific perspective. From a practical standpoint, the technologies may be areas where the student will do further research, take in-depth courses in the specific area (i.e. Speech Understanding) or be used as components for future multimedia systems.
At the end of the Multimedia Systems course, the student should be able to
understand how scientific researchers view multimedia systems
have insight into the state-of-the-art in the prominent areas of scientific multimedia research including social computing, advanced Internet technologies, speech recognition, robotics, computer vision, video tracking, and biometrics
have insight into building a multimedia system from diverse core technologies.
have insight into the challenges and limitations of current multimedia systems
scientifically evaluate a multimedia system
build a prototype multimedia system
