Discrete Optimization Methods in Computer Vision

Instructors: Yuri Boykov, Phil Torr, Ramin Zabih

Duration: 3.5 hours


Computer vision is full of optimization problems, ranging from low-level vision problems like stereo to high-level problems like object recognition. Most researchers rely primarily on continuous methods to solve these optimization problems. While discrete optimization methods are less common in vision, they can be extremely powerful.
