We will also read relevant papers in these areas and discuss them in class.

Background in computer vision, image processing, or pattern recognition is suggested.  The two essential prerequisites are the ability to program well and the ability to comprehend the mathematics.  For example, if you can read about and understand Hidden Markov Models or Kalman filtering, you should be fine.
