Speaker information

Tim Weyrich, rofessor of Visual Computing, UCL

The increasingly ubiquitous availability of high-quality digital cameras enables low-cost visual capture and digitisation of real-world objects and phenomena; at the same time, physical output devices, from high-definition screens to computer-controlled manufacturing, are becoming commonplace. Tim’s work focuses on developing novel representations, algorithms and workflows to open up visual computing (capture, modelling, manipulation and replication of visual and geometric entities) for novel application domains. This talk presents such bespoke developments in a number of areas, including special-effects, cosmetics, mechanics, sculpture and architecture, as well as cultural-heritage preservation, discussing how through careful analysis of traditional problem domains and workflows visual computing can make a difference in previously unexpected ways.
