Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will have learned and be able to apply the practical and scientific methods of project work to the creation of a term paper based on examples, typical problems and applications from the field of signal and image processing with AI, for example research on the state of the art in image processing, classification methods, regression methods, data compression, data reconstruction, human-machine interaction, literature research (also English technical literature), presentation of project results. Students will be expected to document and explain their approach. They must justify and present their results on the basis of engineering research and and knowledge. Their subsequent presentation must succinctly explain/summarize these aspects and illustrate the use of methods for their project work.
