Visual Computing

Creation and understanding of images, shapes, and 3D spaces.

Visual computing studies the creation and understanding of images, shapes, and three-dimensional spaces by computational means. As we seek to increase our understanding of not just how to create and analyze images and sounds, but also how we humans perceive, react to, and interact with them, research in visual computing is of an increasingly interdisciplinary nature.

Research topics: Computer graphics and animation, computer vision, generative modeling in machine learning, virtual acoustics.
