Computational Photography: Going Forward from an Historical Perspective

Speaker:  Brian A. Barsky – Berkeley, CA, United States
Topic(s):  Web, Mobile and Multimedia Technologies


Computational photography is a nascent field that is rapidly gaining interest in various scientific and engineering research communities.  This research is occurring in a context of a democratization of photography where the capability to take photographs is reaching more broadly than ever before.  Historically, this is reminiscent of George Eastman's invention of the first camera for the general public in 1888 which was launched with the advertising slogan ""You press the button, we do the rest."  This talk will present some of the history of photography, including some of the important artistic movements that fueled its evolution.
