About 80% of the data generated worldwide is visual information: images and videos. To capitalize on the value of this enormous amount of information, various technologies are needed to organize, store, retrieve and interpret this information automatically.

In this scenario, image mining provides the framework and tools needed to extract the implicit knowledge, useful data and relationship between image data from the images stored in large image databases.

Since the course does not presuppose prior knowledge of image processing, the first part of the course focuses on providing students with the concepts and methods needed to understand how to structure the information contained in images, which is the first step in starting an image mining project..
