Dates: 20 Nov, 21 Nov, 27 Nov, 30 Nov, 4 Dec, 5 Dec 2023 | 9am-5.30pm | Classroom Learning
Duration: 6 Days
This course equips the participant with a conceptual understanding of Computer Vision (CV). At the end of the course, the participant will be able to manage CV projects, interpret CV results, and understand the limitations of a CV. This course is suitable for end-users, managers as well as CV software developers.
This course is part of Professional Certificate in Fundamentals of Computer Vision.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to do:
• Review of key mathematical concepts used in Computer Vision (CV): functions, trigonometry, probability and statistics
• Image processing, color spaces, image representation and file formats.
• Classification and Regression
• Data Collection: Ethics, Protocol, Management
• Object Detection and Segmentation
• Video Analysis

Dr Natarajan Prabhu
Dr Natarajan Prabhu is currently a lecturer in the School of Computing at the National University of Singapore. He has 10+ years of experience in teaching for master’s degree programs, undergraduate modules, and continuing education courses. Before joining NUS, he was teaching at DigiPen Institute of Technology, where he taught AI for Games, Digital Image Processing, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Data Structures, etc. In DigiPen, he developed a master’ degree program for Computer Vision that primarily prepares graduate students to work in the CV industry. After joining NUS as a lecturer, he is currently working on developing and teaching an AI module for non-CS students in Blended learning.
He graduated with a Ph.D. degree from NUS in 2013, a master’s degree, and a bachelor’s degree from Anna University in 2008 and 2006, respectively. His Ph.D. thesis was about automatically controlling and coordinating multiple active cameras in surveillance networks. During this time he has gained rich experience in building multi-camera surveillance systems. He has received “Best PhD Forum Paper” award from International Conference on Distributed Smart Cameras (Hong Kong, 2012) and “Research Achievement Award” from School of Computing, NUS (2012).
Assoc Prof Terence Sim
Explain. Demonstrate. Experiment. Inspire.
The above sums up Dr Terence Sim’s teaching and research philosophy. Over the years, Dr Sim has had the pleasure of teaching many courses – Introductory Programming, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, Digital Visual Effects, Theoretical Foundations of Multimedia, Analysis of Multimedia – and interacting with many talented students. He is currently teaching a freshmen module in Discrete Structures, and a graduate module in Biometrics Authentication.
For research, Dr Sim explores several areas related to Visual Computing: Facial image analysis, Multimodal biometrics, Facial rendering, Computational photography, Continuous authentication, Music transcription, to name a few. He combines machine learning with physics-based modeling and graphics rendering to tackle the challenges in research. Dr Sim also provides consultancy in biometrics, which can be in the form of training, feasibility study, or technical assessment.
Dr Sim has published over 100 papers in top international journals and conferences. He is active both as Reviewer and as Senior Program Committee Member in numerous conferences. He is also an IEEE Member. He served as President of the Pattern Recognition and Machine Intelligence Association in Singapore from 2014 to 2016, and was also Vice President from 2010 to 2014. Dr Sim also strongly believes in International Standards and served as Chairman of Workgroup 6: Cross-Jurisdiction and Societal Issues of the Biometrics Technical Committee in Singapore from 2006 to 2014.
Dr Sim considers it a blessing and privilege to have attended, and graduated from three top universities in the world: He obtained his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering in 1990 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), his Master of Science in Computer Science in 1991 from Stanford University, and his Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering in 2002 from Carnegie Mellon University.
