This talk is part of the Triangle Computer Science Distinguished Lecturer Series
One of the keys to this success has been the melding of 3D geometric and photometric reconstruction with a heavy re-use of the original imagery, which produces more realistic rendering than a pure 3D model-driven approach. In this talk, I give a retrospective of two decades of research in this area, touching on topics such as sparse and dense 3D reconstruction, the fundamental concepts in image-based rendering and computational photography, applications to virtual reality, as well as ongoing research in the areas of layered decompositions and 3D-enabled video stabilization.
Dr. Szeliski received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, in 1988 and joined Facebook as founding Director of the Computational Photography group in 2015. Prior to Facebook, he worked at Microsoft Research for twenty years, the Cambridge Research Lab of Digital Equipment Corporation for six years, and several other industrial research labs. He has published over 150 research papers in computer vision, computer graphics, neural nets, and numerical analysis, as well as the books Computer Vision: Algorithms and Applications and Bayesian Modeling of Uncertainty in Low-Level Vision. He was a Program Committee Chair for CVPR'2013 and ICCV'2003, served as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence and on the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Computer Vision, and as Founding Editor of Foundations and Trends in Computer Graphics and Vision.
