About the course Advanced deep learning: computer vision

This course provides engineers, programmers and researchers with an in-depth understanding of deep learning for computer vision applications. The course details some deep learning techniques for advanced image processing with an integrative approach: developing, training and deploying models.

This computer vision course consists of three parts:

  1. Object detection
  2. Image segmentation
  3. Hardware and software

For each chapter, you will be given Python code assignments and projects in the form of Jupyter notebooks. You can develop many of the deep learning algorithms yourself after completing this course so that you have the technical skills to start projects on your own.

Prior knowledge:

This course builds on the Advanced deep learning: foundation course. Having this knowledge is required to take this course.

Study Load

During the course, assignments will be provided for you to work on at home. For each course day you should take into account +/- 8 hours of 'homework'.

Certificate of participation

If you complete the course, you will receive a certificate of participation.

Dr. Ir. Albert van Breemen

Dr. Ir. Albert van Breemen studied electrical engineering at the University of Twente and received his PhD in the field of intelligent software systems in 2001. He then worked for 8 years at Philips Research within the Ambient Intelligence program on, among other things, Social Robotics. With the project 'iCat user-interface robot' Albert received the Time Magazine Best Invention award in 2005, and in 2007 the New Technology Foundation (NTF) Award on Entertainment Systems and Robots. Albert then worked for over 10 years as Senior New Business Development Manager at ASML. He researched opportunities for ASML in the application of new technologies, including artificial intelligence. He combined his knowledge for technology and sense for value creation to form his company VBTI in 2019.

With his company he focuses on intelligent automation (sensor-data driven applications): AI applied in machines so that customers from High Tech Manufacturing, Mechanical Engineering and Agriculture, among others, can realize until recently impossible solutions and functionalities in very challenging environments. Think of recognizing leaf nodes in cucumber cultivation or harvesting asparagus. The variation of both the plant and the background are pre-eminent challenges where AI over traditional vision techniques offers a solution.
