Image Segmentation By Clustering

Dive into the world of computer vision with our project-based course focusing on image segmentation. Learn to partition images using clustering techniques, extract features, and refine segmentation results. Ideal for those with basic programming knowledge and an interest in image analysis.

This project-based course delves into the fascinating field of computer vision and image analysis. Image segmentation is a critical task in computer vision, aiming to partition an image into distinct regions or objects based on their visual characteristics. Throughout this course, participants will explore various clustering-based techniques and tools to achieve accurate image segmentation. By learning to extract meaningful features, apply clustering algorithms, and perform post-processing, students will acquire valuable skills for image analysis applications.
