Have you ever used Google's image search tool and wondered how the search results were found? Why is it so difficult for a computer to "see" as we do? Course material will be framed in the context of computer vision, an active area of research in computer science addressing this general topic. This introduction to scientific computing will use the Python programming language and open source libraries. No prior study of computer science is expected.
