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.

VR 2.0: Making virtual reality better than reality, Gordon Wetzstein, Stanford University (United States)

Gordon Wetzstein is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Computer Science, at Stanford University, and leads the Stanford Computational Imaging Group. He received a PhD in computer science from the University of British Columbia (2011) where his doctoral dissertation focused on computational light modulation for image acquisition and display. 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.
