CGGC Seminar: Multi-view Inter-media: From Space to Ocean-depths

Speaker:
Yoav Y. Schechner (EE, Technion)
Date:
Sunday, 15.12.2013, 13:00
Place:
Room 337-8 Taub Bld.

This talk is about ;multi-view imaging via participating media, particularly the 3D volumetric scattering atmosphere and the 3D wavy water-air interface. Camera multi-views are either looking down from outer-space, or looking up from underwater or the ground level.  Multiple views on scales of tens or hundreds of kilometers effectively create a huge lightfield camera-system. This provides constraints for recovering complex scenes, including the 3D distribution of aerosols overhead, or underwater topography. On a small scale, multiple submerged cameras viewing via random water-surface waves create a 'virtual periscope': it stochastically localizes objects in open air, without revealing the viewer. This may have implications to some marine animals.
