II semestre dal Mar 1, 2021 al Jun 11, 2021.
This course is aimed at providing the student with the practical and theoretical tools for virtual representation of objects and complex scene, and the analysis and modelling of three-dimensional data. Formal methods are provided for the digital processing of geometric structures, the 3D acquisition pipeline, and the analysis of rigid and non-rigid shapes. Particular emphasis will be devoted for 3D digital content creation from the observation of real scenes.
At the end of the course, this knowledge will allow the student to: implement a new system for the generation of virtual environments from the observation of real scenes, in a research context, combining formal methods for the analysis of rigid and non-rigid 3D shapes; implement different versions of 3D acquisition pipeline and analyse geometric properties of acquired shapes; deal with object deformation of non-rigid shapes.
In addition, the student must be able to identify the most appropriate 3D modelling method for a given applicative context, including the capability of extending the digital content design system to other disciplines like machine learning and robotics; the student will be independent in continuing the studies in 3D digital design from the observation of the real scenes.
The student will then be able to present the results of a digital design project, discuss with professional experts in the field, and provide the capability of adapting to the technical evolution and state of the art in the 3D digital content design.

The exam consists of an oral test composed of two parts:
1) Part chosen by the student (one of the three options A, B, and C), related to the topics presented during the course (to be agreed via e-mail with the teacher).
2) Questions on the content of the course or on the exercises to evaluate and finalize the final score of the exam.
Options for part 1) in an increasing value for the final evaluation (to be agreed via e-mail with the teacher):
A) Seminar on a specific part of the course (theory+exercises).
B) Seminar on a research paper.
C) Implementation of a small project (mandatory for 30 cum laude).
There is not any difference between attending and non-attending students.
