Orazio Gallo, Senior Research Scientist at NVIDIA, presents the "Computational Photography: Understanding and Expanding the Capabilities of Standard Cameras" tutorial at the May 2016 Embedded Vision Summit.
Today's digital cameras, even at the entry-level, produce pictures with quality comparable to that of high-end cameras of a decade ago. Image processing and computational photography algorithms play a significant role in this improvement. In this talk, Orazio explains the algorithmic processing that cameras perform to produce high-quality images and how this processing interplays with computer vision algorithms. He then discusses algorithms that expand the capabilities of standard cameras by allowing more accurate measurements or new applications.
