Seminar: Perception (Ritschel/Reinhard/Myszkowski)

Applied Perception (Seminar, Winter Semester 2012/2013)

Tobias Ritschel     Erik Reinhard     Karol Myszkowski

As computer graphics is producing images and videos that are ultimately perceived by a human, its mandatory to account for how the human visual system (HVS) is processing this information. The HVS is complex, exhibiting many non-linearities as well as feedback and is only partially understood. While this poses a challenge, it can also be seen as an opportunity which can be exploited in image compression, watermarking, denoising, enhancement, upsampling, etc. Computational models which can predict the human response to the distortion of visual content are important when this opportunity is taken. To this end, our seminar covers computational application of perceptual models of

The target audience are students in computer science or related fields. This seminar is focused on working with and understanding of scientific texts from computer science (graphics, vision) as well as psychology and physiology.

The seminar language is English.
