Computational Cameras: Convergence of Optics and Software
by Shree Nayar, Columbia University

This week, we are proud to present the first of our SIGGRAPH @ UNM series,
where we bring actual SIGGRAPH presentations to the UNM community. This
week, we present Shree Nayar's talk from the popular SIGGRAPH course on
computational photography.

Computational cameras use unconventional optics and software to produce
new forms of visual information, including wide field-of-view images,
high dynamic range images, multispectral images,and depth images. Using
a controllable optical system to form the image and a programmable light
source as the camera's flash can further enhance the capabilities of
these cameras.

Shree K. Nayar is the T. C. Chang Chaired Professor in the Department
of Computer Science at Columbia University. He received his PhD
degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Robotics
Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. At Columbia, he is co-director
of the Columbia Vision and Graphics Center and heads the Computer Vision
Laboratory (CAVE), which is dedicated to the development of advanced
computer vision systems. His research is focused on three broad areas,
namely, the creation of novel vision sensors, the design of physics based
models for vision, and the development of algorithms for scene
interpretation. The work conducted by his research team is motivated by
applications in the fields of digital imaging, computer graphics,
human-machine interfaces and robotics.
