I. COURSE DESCRIPTION/ OBJECTIVE/ TASK
This course is an English course for graduate students from Computer Science and other areas. It focuses on basic principles and applications in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition, Artificial Intelligence, Image Processing and etc. Learning through this course, the students will understand how to apply the related knowledge and technology in actual systems, enhancing the systems and provide solution in real problems related in intelligent system.
This course aims to improve the innovation ability of undergraduate students. It mainly introduces the latest process and analysis knowledge of artificial intelligence and machine learning. This course is for students of information engineering in grade three. It adopts small class, English teaching, and the number of students in the class is limited to about 30. The teaching method will combines classroom teaching with practice, and combine textbook with academic paper.
The main task is to improve the understanding and practical ability of students in the field of intelligent information, comprehensive grasp of computer vision, pattern recognition, image processing, and improve the students' scientific research ability, practical ability and English.

VI. COURSE CHARACTERISTICS
(1) Teaching takes small class, English teaching and discussion mode. Lecturer have overseas study and teaching experience. In foreign countries, lecturer have had the experience of teaching similar course. Internationalized teaching methods can improve the enthusiasm of the students and be better for students to accept the latest knowledge and methods.
(2) This course can better highlight the characteristics of scientific research, and take the teaching methods such as paper discussion, research and practice which can improve students’ research capacity and scientific research interests. It can lay the foundation for future development of students, and make students to master the latest developments in related fields.
(3) Mastering the latest technology, understanding the latest scientific research progress. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and other relevant direction are the current hot topics and most developed level in the computer science field. So it is necessary for students to learn and master this course. At present, the School of Computer Science and Engineering has opened the class Pattern Recognition, Image Processing, Computer Vision and etc. Student may have a more comprehensive understanding of artificial intelligence and related domain after studying of this course. To lay a good foundation for information students.
