SURF-IoT Lunch series: Multi-modal Data Capture, Analysis, Visualization and Display

Title: SURF-IoT Lunch series: Multi-modal Data Capture, Analysis, Visualization and Display
Event Date: 8/10/2017 - 8/10/2017
Event Time: 12:00 p.m.
Event End: 1:30 p.m.

CALIT2 Building, Room 3008


This talk focus on novel directions on various aspects of the life cycle of massive 3D geometry and spectral data. The four stages of this life cycle are capture, analysis, visualization and display. This talk will highlight the progress we have made in iGravi (Interactive Graphics and Visualization Lab) in UCI by pursuing novel hardware, algorithms, and software in each of these directions. The most salient topics include novel portable video-rate spectral sensor and display; fusion of spectral data from multiple sensors; 3D reconstruction, analysis,visualization and rendering of 3D data that is often noisy and incomplete; and novel display devices for information delivery.
Lunch will be available at Noon.



Aditi Majumder is Professor at the Department of Computer Science in University of California, Irvine. She received her PhD from Department of Computer Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2003, co-advised by Dr.Rick Stevens of Argonne National Labs. Her research resides at the junction of computer graphics, vision, visualization and human-computer interaction. Her research focuses on novel displays and cameras exploring new degrees of freedom and quality while keeping them truly commodity, easily accessible to the common man. She has more than 50 publications in top venues like ACM Siggraph, Eurographics, IEEE Visweek, IEEE Virtual Reality (VR), IEEE Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) including best paper awards in IEEE Visweek, IEEE VR and IEEE PROCAMS. She is the co-author of the book "Practical Multi-Projector Display Design". She has served as the program or general chair and program committee is several top venues including IEEE Virtual Reality (VR), ACM Virtual Reality Software and Technology (VRST), Eurographics and IEEE Workshop on Projector Systems. She has served as Associate Editor in Computer and Graphics and IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications. She has played a key role in developing the first curved screen multi-projector display being marketed by NEC/Alienware currently and was an advisor at Disney Imagineering for advances in their projection based theme park rides. She has received the Faculty Research Incentive Award in 2009 and Faculty Research Midcareer Award in 2011 in the School of Information and Computer Science in UCI. She is the recipient of the NSF CAREER award in 2009 for Ubiquitous Displays Via a Distributed Framework. She was a Givens Associate and a student fellow at Argonne National Labs from 2001-2003, Link Foundation Fellow from 2002-2003, and is currently a Senior Member of IEEE.
