Welcome to this lecture on Feature Extraction and Matching Techniques

(page created in November 2015, last modification November 2016)

In this lecture we will give an overview of algorithms for feature extraction and matching. The purpose of features is to extract particular properties (features) of images, intended to be non redundant and informative enough to enable subsequent learning tasks. The list learning tasks is huge, including (to cite just a few) person or object recognition, motion tracking, pose estimation, robot navigation, 3D reconstruction, etc.
