Video Lectures

In Spring 2014, I offered a course at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute based on the book, targeted at beginning graduate students and advanced undergraduates. The following playlist contains roughly hour-long video recordings each covering 1-2 sections of the book. Each video contains my voice over a screen capture of handwritten notes, figures from the book, running code on real images, and webpage/video views. The complete set of 26 videos is available in the playlist below:
