About the Event
Vision is special, because it can be used to predict the future. Good visual representations should be good at answering "what if" questions - will I trip if I walk here? if I put a sofa there, will it look good? I will show methods that can answer some "what if?" questions about rooms from pictures. Rooms form an interesting and important class of scene, because people live in rooms.
D.A. Forsyth is professor of Computer Science in the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. He holds BS and MS degrees from the University of the Witwatersrand, and a DPhil from Balliol College, Oxford. He is currently editor in chief of IEEE TPAMI.
