Talk Title: Computer Vision and Graphics for Real-World Challenges
Series: CS Colloquium
Abstract: With the recent advancements in sensing technology and pervasive computing devices, the fields of computer vision and graphics are witnessing renewed importance in addressing real-world problems. In this talk, I will be discussing my research relating to 3D reconstruction, scene understanding, content generation, and fabrication. My talk will also overview ways this core research can be used in multidisciplinary projects involving city planning, seafloor surveying, and fishery design. I will conclude my talk by discussing potential collaborative projects between computer vision, graphics, and other disciplines to address challenging issues related to human empowerment and the building of sustainable environments.
