Aykut, Tamay

Researcher Aykut, Tamay Name of Research Group: Visual Computing and Artificial Intelligence Homepage Research Group: www.tamay-aykut.com Personal Homepage: www.tamay-aykut.com Mentor Saarbrücken: Hans-Peter Seidel Mentor Stanford: Bernd Girod Research Mission: The VCAI group is involved in cutting-edge research for visual computing by means of artificial intelligence. A key priority is to promote visual realism in remote reality/ telepresence applications to the human user. 3D impression is achieved by providing omnidirectional (360°) stereo vision. The user is thereby...

Steinberger, Markus

Researcher Markus Steinberger GPU Scheduling and Parallel Computing Name of Research Group: GPU Scheduling and Parallel Computing Homepage Research Group: Personal Homepage: www.markussteinberger.net/ Mentor Saarbrücken: Hans-Peter Seidel Mentor Stanford: Research Mission: While Moore’s Law continues, increases in clock speed have been stagnant due to physical obstacles. Thus, hardware and software have turned towards parallelism as an answer to keep up with the ever growing demand for more compute power. The probably highest degree of parallelism within a single chip is found...

Pirk, Sören

Researcher Sören Pirk Geometric Modelling Name of Research Group: Geometric Modelling Homepage Research Group: Personal Homepage: www.pirk.info Mentor Saarbrücken: Hans-Peter Seidel Mentor Stanford: Leonidas Guibas Research Mission: Geometric modeling is one of the fundamental areas of research in Computer Graphics. While this field has dramatically evolved since the very beginning, capturing and modeling geometric descriptions of everyday objects still pose interesting and challenging questions. Modeling the geometry of an object by hand is an elaborate task that easily...
