    Image Statistics: From Data Collection to Applications in Graphics

Course Organizer(s):



    Natural images exhibit statistical regularities that differentiate them from random collections of pixels. Moreover, the human visual  system appears to have evolved to exploit such statistical regularities. As computer graphics is concerned with producing imagery  for observation by humans, it would be prudent to understand which statistical regularities occur in nature, so they can be emulated by image synthesis methods. In this course we introduce all aspects of natural image statistics, ranging from data collection to analysis and finally their applications in computer graphics, computational photography, visualization and image processing.
