Overview

In recent years, the fields of computer graphics, computer vision and photography have converged to give rise to a new and very active area of research -- Computational Photography. The goal in this work is to redefine the camera by using computational techniques to produce an new level of images and visual representations. This course will be seminar, offered to all students with knowledge in any of the three core areas: computer vision, computer graphics, or photography. There will be no midterm or final exam.
