DIP(M): Foveated SIFT 01/12/2009
In 4th year, we were given the choice over which courses to take. This included a list of Masters courses. I chose to take Digital Image Processing, which was a Masters course that had not run for a few years. As an assignment for DIP, we were asked to compare a standard SIFT algorithm with a foveated version of SIFT. The problem with standard SIFT is that it concentrates on matching an entire image with other images, when there may only be a particular object in an image that has to be matched. Though there were some problems with this project, I found it to be a great learning experience, and it increased my confidence in using Matlab.
