computer vision

Shared by reBlog @ Eyebeam

It sounds like a daunting task, but some researchers at Harvard and MIT have banded together to basically "reverse engineer" the human brain's ability to process visual data into usable information. However, instead of testing one processing model at a time, they're using a screening technique borrowed from molecular biology to test a range of thousands of models up against particular object recognition tasks. To get the computational juice to accomplish this feat, they've been relying heavily on GPUs, saying the off-the-shelf parallel computing setup they've got gives them hundred-fold speed improvements over conventional methods.

Interactive Digital Cinema Project

Immersive Interactive Multisensory Cinema Capture and Playback system studies novel aesthetic, expressive and narrative possibilities enabled by creative misuses of hardware and software technologies and computer vision methods. The project utilizes appropriated, hacked and modified hardware, microcontrollers, multiple 3d and video softwares using a custom workflow, and a minimalist viewing furniture based on a customized version of finnish industrial designer Esa Vesmanen's lounger design.
