Seminar on Photometric 3D Modeling by Dr. Yasuyuki Matsushita
Title: Photometric 3D Modeling
Date: 9 February 2012
Time: 3:15 pm – 3:45 pm
Venue: Room G22, L1 Lecture Theater, Institute of Chinese Studies
Speaker: Dr. Yasuyuki Matsushita
Lead Researcher in the Visual Computing Group

Over the past two decades, we have seen tremendous theoretical advances in photometric methods for 3-D modeling, where we wish to reconstruct the scene geometry from observed images under varying lighting conditions. These advances now motivate us to more practical applications in industry, or even in our daily life. The first half of this talk introduces theory and algorithms in photometric stereo. The second half will cover recent advanced techniques for photometric stereo and discuss how to remove the limitations of traditional approaches.
Yasuyuki Matsushita received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in EECS from the University of Tokyo in 1998, 2000, and 2003, respectively. He joined Microsoft Research Asia in April 2003. He is a Lead Researcher in Visual Computing Group. His research area includes photometric methods in computer vision.
