Visual Computing - Bridging Real and Digital Domain, Marcus Magnor
Sprache des Titels:
Any luminous or illuminated object continuously emits images of itself, in all directions, and over huge distances. At the speed of light images convey a wealth of information about their origins which our visual system can decipher almost without effort, in real time, extremely efficient, and enormously robust. Consequently, the visual sense has evolved to become our prime modality for gathering information of our environs. In my talk I will outline how we have only just begun to exploit visual information as the ideal interface between the real and digital world, as well as between the digital domain and human brains. Visual Computing constitutes a fundamental Enabling Technology of the 21. century that paves the way for various technological advances of substantial economic as well as social impact.
