I'm trying to write a new computer vision textbook. I'm going to post updated versions here as I do so. The plan is to first teach probability and machine learning and then present each chapter as a different model with associated learning and inference algorithms.

Worked on chapter 6 today which concerns modeling complex density functions using hidden variables and the EM algorithm. Sorted out numerous small mistakes. Made a figure illustrating a regression problem where we try to predict one pose from another. Made a second figure which concerns using hidden variables to register images of digits together.
