Bionic Compound Eye: A revolutionary dimension in Visual Computing - Professor Amar Aggoun's Presentation
- When? 13 November 2019 , 5:30pm - 9pm
- Where? Please report to Room MA221 for reception. (Which is located in Wulfruna Building) - Lecture is taking place in room MA202.
The core tasks in the field of Visual Computing have been to digitally capture or virtually generate, recover and interpret an object scene with the aid of computer systems. Visual Computing is striving to reproduce the human visual perception and most attempts to are based on 3D technologies, such as stereoscopic technology which has been at the forefront of the production and consumer market. At the same time and due to limitations of the current 3D technology, research is focusing on the next generation of more sophisticated depth-illusion technologies such as the promising Light Field Imaging technology.
Light-field imaging technology mimics insects’ visual perception system, such as that of a fly, where a large number of micro-lenses are used to capture a scene, allowing 3D content to be captured using a single aperture camera, offering rich parallax information and enhanced 3D feeling without the need of wearing specific eyewear. This talk will present the advances and challenges of the light field imaging technology and its applications in the domains of creative industries, health, security and engineering.
