Research Areas

My research interests concentrate on data-driven visual computing, specifically

  • Material measurement and appearance synthesis: after previuosly recording scenes with reflectance fields in image space as purely data driven representations (Fuchs et al. ACM TOG 2007, CGF 2007) and investigating the synthesis of appearance with digital manufacturing (Fuchs et al. SIGGRAPH 2008, Hašan et al. SIGGRAPH 2010; see also our STAR report by Hullin et al. 2013 ), we currently investigate the efficient control of parametric, procedural models. In our recent publication (Gieseke et al. 2014), we have shown a fast method to achieve this for procedural two-tone textures using photographs as input.

  • Interactive Systems: fast GPUs make real-time processing of video streams possible, improving the recording of video sequences. The growing computing power of mobile devices enable the capture of 3D geometry with hand-held devices.

    Just as computational photography extends the abilities of conventional cameras, computational illumination extends the abilities of light sources. Combining both projector and camera in a closed-loop cycle, we can perform in-scene image processing, creating a light source with virtually arbitrary, programmable response (Wang et al., ICCP 2010) for novel human-world interactions.
