Talks & Seminars
Title: Extreme Computational Imaging
Prof. Ramesh Raskar, MIT, MIT Media Lab
Date & Time: January 28, 2016 10:25
Venue: SIC Conference Room, First Floor, KR Bldg.
The Camera Culture Group at the MIT Media Lab aims to create a new class of imaging platforms. Time permitting, his talk will discuss three tracks of research: femto photography, retinal imaging, and 3D displays. Femto photography consists of femtosecond laser illumination, picosecond-accurate detectors and mathematical reconstruction techniques allowing researchers to visualize propagation of light. Current applications such as automotive LiDARs (used by self driving cars) and LiDAR speed guns are just the 'tip of the iceberg'. New applications, which seem like sci-fi, such as cameras which can see around corners, scanning a closed book, etc. are being developed.
Speaker Profile:
Ramesh Raskar is an associate professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab. Raskar joined the Media Lab from Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories in 2008 as head of the Lab's Camera Culture research group. His research interests span the fields of computational photography, inverse problems in imaging and human-computer interaction. In 2004, Raskar received the TR100 Award from Technology Review, which recognizes top young innovators under the age of 35, and in 2003, the Global Indus Technovator Award, instituted at MIT to recognize the top 20 Indian technology innovators worldwide. Raskar has a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an M.S. in computer science from the University of Iowa and a B.S. in electronics and telecommunications from the Government College of Engineering (India). He holds more than 50 U.S. patents and has received four Mitsubishi Electric Invention Awards. He is currently co-authoring a book on computational photography.
