VIVARIUM Seminar: Some Recent Advances in Visual Computing

July 24, 2008
Location: TASC 9404 West
Presenter: Daniel Cohen-Or, School of Computer Science, Tel-Aviv University


Research in Computer Graphics and Visual Computing is quite diverse, and so does my talk. I will cover a number of topics, showing some recent advances in three parts. In the first, I will show new techniques in surface reconstruction including a new projection operator and a robust registration technique. In the second part I will present a data-driven enhancement of facial attractiveness. In the last part of my talk, I will briefly present some new modeling techniques, one that deals with upright positioning of models and the second deals with their stretching.

Daniel Cohen-Or gave one of the SFU CS/PIMS Distinguished Lectures last year. He is a Professor at the School of Computer Science at Tel-Aviv University. He received a B.Sc. in both Mathematics and Computer Science (1985), an M.Sc. in Computer Science (1986) from Ben Gurion University, and a Ph.D, from the Department of Computer Science (1991) at State University of New York at Stony Brook. He is the recipient of the 2005 Eurographics Outstanding Technical Contributions Award. His current research interest includes, shape modeling, surface reconstruction, and image synthesis.
