IMAWM-157 The internet on things: Delivering augmented reality experiences in context, Michael Gormish, Blippar (United States)

Michael Gormish is Principal Scientist at Blippar on the infrastructure team working on image retrieval and multiple computer vision products. Gormish is an image processing and computer vision scientist and engineer who invented algorithms used in products including video games, digital cinema, satellite and medical image acquisition and transport. He earned a PhD in electrical engineering dealing with image and data compression from Stanford University. In his twenty year career at Ricoh, he led several aspects of the JPEG 2000 standardization and provided key inventions used in photocopiers, digital cameras, tablets and imaging services. He was awarded the status of Ricoh Patent Master for being a co-inventor on more than 100 US patents. He has served the research community as an Associate Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, Associate Editor of the Journal of Electronic Imaging, Program Chair of the Document Engineering Conference, and technical committee member and reviewer for numerous conferences and journals. Currently he is interested changing the world via mobile image understanding.

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.
