Carnegie Mellon Hosts Computational Photography Conference
The Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute will host 150 researchers for the third annual International Conference on Computational Photography (ICCP) April 8-10, a “one-stop shop” for the diverse set of disciplines involved in computational imaging techniques.
The combination of computations and imaging has opened up a number of exciting possibilities in science and art, said Srinivasa Narasimhan, associate professor of robotics and one of the conference’s program chairs. “Some of the research problems span a lot of areas – medical imaging, robotics, art photography, optics, sensors. We want this conference to be a one-stop shop for cross-cutting research.”
The diversity is reflected in the keynote speakers. Illah Nourbakhsh, associate professor of robotics, will talk about the scientific application for the GigaPan gigapixel imaging technique developed by researchers in his lab and at NASA. Lihong V. Wan, a professor of biomedical engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, will discuss the use of photoacoustic tomography for early cancer detection. Ed Dowski, a partner in Ascentia Imaging, will describe a new class of future imaging systems, called application-specific imaging systems, that combine sensors and processing to provide specific types of information.
