Computer Vision is one of the grand challenges of Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science. Despite some impressive recent commercial applications, the goal of attaining human level visual performance with a computer and a camera remains elusive. This one week Winter School will bring together the top researchers in the world to present the current state of Computer Vision and discuss future directions. The program will include tutorials, panel discussions and multiple opportunities for direct interaction between the students and the faculty.
