NEW DELHI -- More free computer course certificates are available in India.A new website, ComputerCourse.in, is offering free online courses for Indian students to learn the basics of computer programming.The courses are based on free basic computer classes available at computer colleges.There are currently three courses available in the program, "The Basics of Computer Programming," "Compute...
A course on computer vision, which teaches how to use algorithms to detect faces in photos, will cost you more than £30.
It’s not just a bad deal, it could be damaging for your job prospects, according to a job-hunting study.
Computer vision has become increasingly important for companies that want to compete in the increasingly competitive world of information technology, according the University of Leicester study, published on Monday.
The course is offered by the university’s Computer Vision Laboratory.
Computer-vision experts are often used to analysing data to improve the accuracy of software and hardware.
But this is a field that is being increasingly challenged by a new generation of artificial intelligence algorithms.
The new generation is becoming increasingly complex, so the experts need to be able to use computers to better understand the world around them, according Dr Mark Jones, one of the authors of the study.
“There is no substitute for good software and good hardware,” said Jones.
The new research showed that while computer vision could be an effective tool for job search, it is also potentially dangerous. “
But it is not a good place to get started with the job market.”
The new research showed that while computer vision could be an effective tool for job search, it is also potentially dangerous.
In a study of the first 10 years of the course, which ran from 2009 to 2014, the study found that there were five job-related computer vision jobs for every computer science graduate in the field, and there were fewer than 100 graduates each year who were successful in their job searches.
The university said that the new course would not help anyone who was looking for a job.
“In general, there is not enough work done in computer vision,” said Dr Matthew Stoll, who led the research.
“So there is really not that much work to go on in the first year of study and you would be surprised how little of it would be of value in the job-search process.”
Dr Jones said the computer-vision industry was currently trying to tackle the “challenges of artificial perception”, but this was not being addressed by the new study.
He said that while it was a good idea to look at what the job candidates would need, “there is no evidence to suggest that this is something that is useful to the average person”.
“There are very few computer-science graduates with the skills to get into these jobs,” he said.
“The only way that they are going to get a job is if they are willing to learn and apply the skills and techniques that they’ve acquired in the course.”
The course has been approved by the UK’s Department for Education.
The University of Edinburgh said it was not aware of any other university offering the course.
