Mathematica for Image Processing: Wolfram Technologies Workshop 2014

About the event

This short course, held at the European HQ of Wolfram Research, is for people who are interested in learning how to use Mathematica for image processing. In addition to an introduction to the Mathematica environment and Wolfram programming language, we will cover a wide range of image processing capabilities.

In order to be able to join in the exercises, please bring your laptop with you, with Mathematica pre-installed.

Who is the course suitable for?

The content has been designed for those without any experience using Mathematica, but will also be useful to individuals interested in learning more about what they could do with the system.

What does the course cover?

  • Importing and transforming images
  • Local and morphological filtering
  • Image segmentation
  • Feature detection and content analysis

  • The course will be delivered through highly interactive Mathematica notebooks, providing a wide range of examples and easily modifiable code. The capabilities will be shown using examples from a range of scientific and engineering contexts.
