Learning outcomes

On completion of the course, the student shall be able to:

  • critically evaluate and discuss scientific papers in the field of image analysis and machine learning;
  • search for and critically evaluate scientific papers to obtain a deeper understanding of specific sub-fields within image analysis and machine learning;
  • describe principles, methods, and algorithms within image analysis and machine learning, as well as their applications and limitations;
  • integrate theory and method knowledge for image analysis and machine learning, and to use, compare and evaluated different models.


The course is based on seminars, guest lectures, reading and discussion of scientific papers. The course contents are thematically adapted to the different specialization within the Master's Programme in Image Analysis and Machine Learning, and to some extent also to the preferences of the individual students. Topics that may be included in the course include texture analysis, image registration, graph based methods.

The course also contains reading assignments, oral and written presentations, critical analysis of scientific papers and methods, discussions one ethical principles. Practical implementation and evaluation of methods for image analysis and machine learning may also be included.


Lectures, seminares, and literature studies.


Active participations in literature seminars (2.5 credits). Written and oral presentation of individual literature studies within a topic of specialization (5 credits). 

If there are special reasons for doing so, an examiner may make an exception from the method of assessment indicated and allow a student to be assessed by another method.
