Finally Prof has spoken up.

Status report / Three weeks on recognition coming up
As may of you have noticed, over the last month my production of lecture material has been rather slow, for which I apologize. The teaching of this course is a strictly unpaid volunteer effort on my part, and that of the TA, Bharath Hariharan. At the same time, I have many other responsibilities and duties such as my research and obligations to my employer. Part of the problem is that my guess of the time needed to prepare online lecture material was a gross underestimate. While I have been teaching in a classroom at UC Berkeley for many years, the online medium required the creation of almost all the lecture material from scratch, which took quite a bit of time. I was forced to choose between quantity and quality and I chose to sacrifice quantity. My thought has been that even if it is at a slow pace, it is still serving a useful purpose, and the content produced so far will provide a good base for subsequent versions of this course. Some of my Coursera colleagues whose courses are much more polished than mine have had the benefit of these rounds of refinement, whereas the current course is my raw, first attempt. Sorry!

However I still believe I will be able to meet my basic goal for this course- an introduction to the fundamentals of computer vision. We have completed the fundamentals of reconstruction with the lectures on dynamic perspective and stereopsis. Over the next THREE weeks, I will cover the fundamentals of recognition. I have introduced image processing already. The next lecture will get into the basic computations that provide the raw material for recognition algorithms. Then we jump into machine learning approaches for recognition. We will conclude with a multiple-choice final exam on the basis of which those who are so interested could get a certificate of completion.

I have more time available for recording lectures over the next three weeks, so I hope to sustain a pace that should enable me to accomplish this goal of covering the basics of visual recognition. I thank all those who have stayed with the course so far for their patience. I appreciate your pioneering spirit and willingness to tolerate the starting pains.

Someone asked me what are research topics on C.V. There are many fields that require wide research like Context Tracking, Human Pose Analysis, Facial Expression Recognition, Binocular and Multiple View Stereo Using Tensor Voting, etc. Let us discuss all relevant topics and their scope in research industry.

Here are some links I found for extra studying:
a book:http://szeliski.org/Book/ Berkeley's projects: http://www.eecs.berkeley.edu/Research/Projects/CS/vision/

If you have some great links, please share.

Ups, you're right. Somehow i was sure, there's two parts in those course with reconstruction. But anyway, I hope it will be better. :(

Bharath Hariharan, from the staff finally resolved the confusions. Link to his thread: https://class.coursera.org/vision/forum/thread?thread_id=84
He mentions two books for reference although they are not mandatory:
-David Forsyth and Jean Ponce, Computer Vision: A Modern -ApproachRichard Szelinsky, Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications
