- Signals and Systems (6.003)
- Familiarity with linear algebra (18.06) and probability (6.041)
- Some Matlab experience

Both texts are available at Quantum Books:

- D. Forsyth and J. Ponce,
*Computer Vision: A Modern Approach*, Prentice Hall, 2002. - B. Horn,
*Robot Vision*, MIT Press, 1986. (errata)

- Two take-home exams
- Four problem sets with lab exercises in Matlab
- No final exam
- Final project for graduate students (6.866)

Problem sets may be discussed, but all written work and coding must be done individually. Take-home exams may not be discussed. Individuals found submitting duplicate or substantially similar materials due to inappropriate collaboration may get an F in this class and other sanctions.

Take-Home Exams (2) | Problem Sets (4) | Final Project | |
---|---|---|---|

6.801 | 60% | 40% | N/A |

6.866 | 40% | 30% | 30% |

The final project may be

- An original implementation of a new or published idea
- A detailed empirical evaluation of an existing implementation of one or more methods
- A paper comparing three or more papers not covered in class, or surveying recent literature in a particular area

A project proposal not longer than two pages must be submitted and approved before the end of October.
