Color Imaging XXII: Displaying, Processing, Hardcopy, and Applications

Workshop Spotlight: "How can COLOR imaging provide US with powerful INSIGHTS?"  led by Fritz Lebowsky, STMicroelectronics Inc.


We would very much like to have you participate in a special session in which we ask the questions and exchange the ideas that frequently trouble us during research and development projects. The presence of experts in COLOR imaging and perhaps Electronic Imaging at large will provide a unique opportunity for an efficient and lively exchange sharing simple/stupefying ideas that in turn enable fascinating engineering concepts, and thereby may also stimulate your own future research and development projects!

Here are a few sample questions:
  • How 'color-blind' are mathematical concepts (metrics) today?
  • How does COLOR tell us a special story about problem solving?
  • What are the most simple/powerful building blocks that you find easy to combine across your own research and development challenges?
These types of questions may not only lead to a highly valuable snapshot of ideas and key examples, but could also trigger an avalanche of many more interesting and curious questions accompanying your ongoing pursuit in research and development.

Ideally, each participant prepares to discuss the following questions:
  • What am I most curious about my own research/development?
  • What am I most proud of in my own research/development achievements?
  • What do I feel highly troubled/puzzled with in my own research/development activities?

Giga-scale 3D computational microscopy, Laura Waller, University of California, Berkeley (United States)

Laura Waller is the Ted Van Duzer Endowed Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS) at UC Berkeley. She is a Senior Fellow at the Berkeley Institute of Data Science, and received her BS (2004), MEng (2005), and PhD (2010) in EECS from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Waller's talk is on computational imaging methods for fast capture of gigapixel-scale 3D intensity and phase images in a commercial microscope that employs illumination-side and detection-side coding of angle (Fourier) space with simple hardware and fast acquisition. The result is high-resolution reconstructions across a large field-of-view, achieving high space-bandwith-time product.

In his talk, Wetzstein explores the frontiers of VR systems engineering. Eventually, VR/AR systems will redefine communication, entertainment, education, collaborative work, simulation, training, telesurgery, and basic vision research, as next-generation computational near-eye displays evolve to deliver visual experiences that are better than the real world.

Designing VR video camera systems, Brian Cabral, Facebook, Inc. (United States)

Brian Cabral is Director of Engineering at Facebook, leading the Surround 360 VR camera team, specializing in computational photography, computer vision, and computer graphics. He has published a number of papers in the area of computer graphics and imaging including the pioneering Line Integral Convolution algorithm. Cabral discusses developing Facebook Surround 360, an open, high-quality 3D-360 video capture system. VR video capture systems are composed of multiple optical and digital components - all of which must operate as if they are one seamless optical system. The design of VR video cameras, optical choices, SNR, etc., require a new set of technologies and engineering approaches, with tight coupling to the computational system components.
