Location: Room 220, Building 8


Imaging systems are critical to computer vision, computer graphics, robotics, biomedical imaging, security, etc. An effective imaging system should have an understanding of the world that far exceeds human ability while producing meaningful imagery data that are well within human comprehensibility. In this talk, I will summarize my work in the past decade on applying fundamental science and engineering principles to developing next-generation imaging systems. Specifically, I will discuss how to tailor lens, shutter, aperture, flash, and sensor as well as construct hybrid/multi-camera systems for capturing more meaningful visual information. I then demonstrate applying these systems to life and health sciences, national security, energy and environment, and digital entertainment. Finally, I will discuss future directions ranging from optically smart sensors for empowering disabled persons, to portable medical imaging devices for smart healthcare, and to mobile computational imaging for harvesting productivity of crowdsourcing.


Jingyi Yu is a Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Sciences and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Delaware. He received B.S. from Caltech in 2000 and Ph.D. from MIT in 2005. His research interests span a range of topics in computer vision and computer graphics, especially on computational photography and imaging. He has published nearly 100 papers at highly refereed conferences and journals including over 40 papers at the premiere conferences CVPR/ICCV/ECCV. Dr. Yu's research has been generously supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institute of Health (NIH), the Army Research Office (ARO), and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). He is a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award and the AFOSR YIP Award. He has served as an area chair of ICCV '11, ACCV '14, ICCV '15, and NIPS '15, and a program chair of PROCAMS '09, OMNIVIS '11, LF4CV '14, and CCD '15. He is currently an Associate Editor of IEEE TPAMI, Springer TVCJ and Springer MVA.
