Sampling and Reconstruction of High-Dimensional Visual Appearance

Friday, December 12, 2014

Host: Prof. Larry Milstein & Prof. M

Many problems in computer graphics and computer vision involve high-dimensional 3D-8D visual datasets. Real-time image synthesis with changing lighting and view is often accomplished by pre-computing the 6D light transport function (2 dimensions each for spatial position, incident lighting and viewing direction). Realistic image synthesis also often involves acquisition of appearance data from real-world objects; a BRDF (Bi-Directional Reflection Distribution Function) that measures the scattering of light at a single surface location is 4D and spatial variation and subsurface scattering involve 6D-8D functions. In computer vision, problems like lighting insensitive facial recognition similarly involve understanding the space of appearance variation across lighting and view. Since hundreds of samples may be required in each dimension, and the total size is exponential in the dimensionality, brute force acquisition or precomputation is often not even feasible.
