V-SENSE - Extending Visual Sensation through Image-Based Visual Computing

Aljosa Smolic, TCD
12-1pm  9th Dec 2016

Abstract

Extending visual sensation to the limits of human perception, while enabling a maximum of artistic freedom and creative potential has always been the focus of my research. Technologies for image-based visual computing have been the means to achieve that. In my new role as Professor of Creative Technologies at Trinity College Dublin, I now have the opportunity to take this to a new level. This talk will highlight some of my past achievements and an outlook to plans around 3D, VR, AR, HDR, and beyond.
