Making Image Processing Fun to Learn

Switch off your room lights and come watch some beautiful pictorial representations of mathematics. Watch numbers and arrays come to life as colors on your screen. There are absolutely no per-requisites except that you understand matrices. At the end we will also demo some weekend project ideas you could try your hands on. Nothing complicated, just simple math and colors.

About this event

Did you know that trigonometry never actually left your life even after school? Literally every time you are viewing a jpeg file on your device, it is being rendered using the cosine function. And did you know your sexy black-and-white image edits are actually done using scalar multiplications?

If you didn't, join us on the next Sunday night, switch off your room lights and come watch some beautiful pictorial representations of mathematics. Watch numbers and matrices come to life with colors on your screen. There are absolutely no pre-requisites except that you understand matrices. At the end we will also demo some weekend project ideas you could try your hands on. Nothing complicated, just simple math and colors.

The field of Image Processing is a very popular precedent to fields like Computer Vision and to most image-classifiers or deep learning models you will come across in future.

At the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Understand digital images
  • Perform mathematics on images

  • Apply filtering and various transformations to digital images

  • Understand human visual perception and the color model

  • Quick intro to numpy
  • Flex about cool stuff

Next session will be on Principles of Computer Vision (if there is a next session, that is).
