  • Submission of Group Project Report

    Posted by Annette Spooner Monday 03 August 2020, 10:46:49 AM.

    The group project report will be submitted via Turnitin on Moodle, in the same way as Lab 5. This link is now available on Moodle and is labelled "Project Report Submission via Turnitin". You will be able to see your similarity score. You can submit as many times as you like up to the due date, which is Friday 7th August at 23:39 (midnight) , but after the 3rd submission Turnitin will take 24 hours to generate your updated similarity score. So use your submissions wisely.

  • Week 9: Example Applications

    Posted by Erik Meijering Wednesday 29 July 2020, 06:02:44 PM.

    Dear students, as announced, this week we will be showing you various example applications of computer vision. They are now available on Echo360. Two of our tutors are presenting their COMP9517 group project demo of last term, as inspiration for your own group project demos. Another tutor is demonstrating a personal project he's been working on. And the remaining videos are presentations given at the IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging (ISBI) in April 2020, including from our own researchers at CSE and GSBmE, as well as from researchers at other universities in the world. Enjoy! Cheers, Erik

  • Lab 5 Deadline Extended to Midnight 31/7/20

    Posted by Annette Spooner Wednesday 29 July 2020, 02:38:27 PM, last modified Wednesday 29 July 2020, 04:07:38 PM.

    We have updated the settings on Turnitin to allow you to see your similarity score. You can resubmit as many times as you like until the due date. However, after submitting 3 times Turnitin will not generate your new similarity score for 24 hours. For this reason we have decided to extend the deadline for Lab 5 until 23:59 (midnight) on Friday 31st July.

    For other questions about Turnitin, please read the discussions on Piazza.

  • Similarity Scores on Turnitin

    Posted by Annette Spooner Wednesday 29 July 2020, 12:03:51 PM.

    Last night the Turnitin settings were adjusted to provide a similarity score on submission of Lab5. If you submitted previously and didn't receive a similarity score, you can resubmit your lab to see your score. After 3 submissions, the similarity score is not calculated for 24 hours.

Please join the Teams meeting at least 15 minutes prior to your scheduled time . Please join with your microphone muted so as not to disturb the other demos. You are welcome to stay and watch other demos.

    Remember all students from a group MUST be present for that group's demo.

  • Week 8 & 9 Deep Learning and Computer Vision Demos

    Posted by Erik Meijering Friday 24 July 2020, 09:41:17 AM.

    Dear students, yesterday's lecture by Dr. Yang Song was the last theoretical part of the course. The remaining lectures of Week 8 and Week 9 will not be about new theory but will consist of demos showing various deep learning and computer vision applications. Today's lecture by Dr. Yanming Zhu provides a practical tutorial/demo of deep learning to complement yesterday's lecture. Next week we will show you a series of applications of computer vision, illustrating how many of the techniques you have learned in the course are used in practice. Best wishes, Erik

    4. If you have a problem with the running of the course, please email the LIC or course admin to discuss it. Remember, we are all trying our best to help you under difficult circumstances.

    When submitting your lab work, please create a .zip file containing your code and your resulting images as separate files. From this week on, marks will not be awarded for your results if your images are not included along with your code.

    After submitting your work online, always look at the Check Submission tab on the submission link to make sure that it has been received. If it has not been received it cannot be marked.

Please treat these online lab sessions in the same way and work on the lab questions during the lab hour, asking your tutor for help online if you need it. You will only benefit from the lab sessions if you have done some preparation.

  • Lab and Project Groups

    Posted by Annette Spooner Monday 01 June 2020, 11:36:13 AM.

    Labs for COMP9517 will begin in Week 2 and the Lab hour is scheduled for Friday 1-2pm. As you know COMP9517 also has a group project. You will each have one tutor assigned to mentor you for your labs and the group project, so you will have the opportunity to get to know that tutor throughout the term.

    Please form your project groups this week and we will create lab groups by combining project groups. There must be 5 students in each group . If anyone has not been able to form a group by Tuesday 9th June, we will allocate you to a group.

    Being an online course, you may not have the opportunity to meet other students from the course in person, making it more difficult to form groups. But we have set up a class team in Microsoft Teams, called COMP9517 20T2, to which you have all been added. Here you will be able to see the names of other students in the course.

    To see who is in the course:

    1. Find the Team COMP9517 20T2
    2. Beside the team name, click More options > Manage team .
    3. There is a list of members in the Members tab.

    To register your project groups:

    1. On the course web page on WebCMS3, go to Groups and click on Create (top right).
    2. Enter your group's name (inappropriate group names will not be accepted).
    3. Make sure you select " Group Project " from the Group Type drop-down .
    4. You can then add other students to your group by clicking on the add button.
    5. Alternatively you can click on the Join button beside the name of an existing group to join it.

    If you have any problems please post on the forum.
