I am basically an Electronics and Communication Engineering student. My relevant coursework include Probability Theory and Stochastic Processes, Engineering Mathematics, Signals and Systems, Digital Signal Processing (this semester).
Now, this area Computer Vision - Image Processing - Object recognition - etc caught my eye and I am thinking to study this subject and write a nice research paper in one of the areas later on.
So, could anyone tell me what the differences between Computer Vision and Image Processing are? Say, we consider Object recognition - what are the roles of vision and image processing?
