Course description and aims

Human sensation and perception system which is an essential knowledge to develop effective and friendly information processing, communications and display for human life is described in addition to explain quantification procedures of sense and these mechanisms.
Human centered information communication technologies using human information processing are also presented.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:
(1) understand foundation of human sensory information processing, and the relationships between sensory information processing and information engineering systems.
(2) learn methodologies such as quantification procedures for sense.

Keywords

Visual Information Processing, Human Information Processing, Sensation, Psychophysics

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

At the beginning of each class, solutions to exercise problems that were assigned during the previous class are reviewed. Towards the end of class, students are given quizes related to the lecture given that day to solve. To prepare for class, students should read the course schedule section and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
