There are many things worth knowing about studying computer science at RWTH Aachen University. This article presents a collection of tips and tricks regarding specific courses as well as studying computer science in general.
In the course of a seminar on “Selected Topics in Image Processing”, I worked on iPiano, an algorithm for non-convex and non-smooth optimization proposed by Ochs et al. . iPiano combines forward-backward splitting with an inertial force. This article presents the corresponding seminar paper including an implementation in C++ with applications to image denoising, image segmentation and compressed sensing.
This series collects tips and tricks for working with Ubuntu: installing Jupyter/IPython, Caffe not finding CUDA, NVidia login loop and monitoring GPU usage.
Image retrieval describes the problem of finding, within a large database, images containing the same or similar objects as a given query image. This article is meant to provide a short reading list for image retrieval by focussing on the associated subproblems: image description, descriptor compression, nearest-neighbor search and query expansion.
