COMP5405: Digital Media Computing

Digital media data such as audio, image, videos, graphics, and 3D are increasingly becoming indispensable for big data driven computing applications in many domains, such as social media, public security, education, commerce, entertainment, and healthcare. This unit aims to bring students the essential knowledge on digital media, various computing techniques and tools on digital media processing and analysis, and many cutting-edge digital media applications such as VR/AR and Internet of Things (IoT) enabled new media. It will help students build practical computing skills for digital media driven applications and utilise learned knowledge to produce creative and media rich solutions to real world problems.
