My talks website has many other slide presentations that you are welcome to use.
The Birmingham Cognition and Affect website has many papers and PhD theses on it.
There is a robotics project called 'CoSy', funded by the European Community which involves 7 Universities in different places, and which I hope will address some of the issues mentioned in my talk. The Birmingham website for CoSy is http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/research/projects/cosy/ Take a look at this partial specification of the tasks in designing the robot called 'PlayMate'.
The popvision library is available as part of Poplog. In addition to
tutorial materials and tools on image analysis it includes some nice
tools for displaying and manipulating images in Pop11. To find out what
is in the package you first need to make it available.
In Pop11 do
uses popvisionThen in the editor, VED, or XVED, try these commands. There are many example bits of code that you can run from the editor.

VISION1 - image representation and display VISION2 - introduction to convolution VISION3 - further convolution, Gaussian masks and edge detection VISION4 - the Hough transform VISION5 - perspective projection and stereoscopic vision VISION6 - visual motion VISION7 - active contoursThe package also includes a matlab-like library for linear algebra.
Please remember: if you sit passively listening in lectures you will not remember anything later: you need to be active in some way, e.g. taking rough notes on the content of the lecture, and then later that day or the next day, take your notes and re-write them in a more coherent form. After that you can throw them away: the point is not to have the notes in the end, but to engage with the notes by doing something active. That's how you will learn -- and stretch your minds, which is presumably what you came to University to do.
If you think I should provide any more information on this web page, please let me know.
