The Duke Machine Learning Winter School: Computer Vision (MLWS-CV) will be held January 2-4, 2022 as a live, virtual three-day class that provides lectures on the fundamentals of machine learning and computer vision. The curriculum in the MLWS-CV is targeted to individuals interested in learning about machine learning (ML) with a focus on computer vision: a field that seeks to develop foundational theory and computational approaches for the characterization and understanding of digital images. From an applied perspective, computer vision aims at using such approaches to automate tasks traditionally carried out by humans. The MLWS-CV will introduce the mathematics and statistics at the foundation of modern machine learning models for computer vision and provide context for the methods that have formed the foundations of rapid growth in artificial intelligence (AI). Nine prior Duke Machine Learning Schools have been presented since 2017, reaching hundreds of participants from academia and industry and including international audiences at the SingHealth/Duke NUS Medical School and the Duke Kunshan University campus. Last year's machine learning school attracted 170 participants from around the world, representing 43 universities, institutes, and corporations.
