Amnon Shashua, CEO and CTO, Mobileye, and Senior Vice President of Intel Corporation (United States)


The field of transportation is undergoing a seismic change with the coming introduction of autonomous driving. The technologies required to enable computer driven cars involves the latest cutting edge artificial intelligence algorithms along three major thrusts: Sensing, Planning and Mapping. Prof. Shashua will describe the challenges and the kind of computer vision and machine learning algorithms involved, but will do that through the perspective of Mobileye's activity in this domain. He will then describe how OrCam leverages computer vision, situation awareness and language processing to enable Blind and Visually impaired to interact with the world through a miniature wearable device.

Prof. Amnon Shashua holds the Sachs chair in computer science at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His field of expertise is computer vision and machine learning. For his academic achievements he received the MARR prize Honorable Mention in 2001, the Kaye innovation award in 2004, and the Landau award in exact sciences in 2005. In 1999 Prof. Shashua co-founded Mobileye, an Israeli company developing a system-on-chip and computer vision algorithms for a driving assistance system, providing a full range of active safety features using a single camera. Today, approximately 24 million cars rely on Mobileye technology to make their vehicles safer to drive. In August 2014, Mobileye claimed the title for largest Israeli IPO ever, by raising $1B at a market cap of $5.3B. In addition, Mobileye is developing autonomous driving technology with more than a dozen car manufacturers. The introduction of autonomous driving capabilities is of a transformative nature and has the potential of changing the way cars are built, driven and own in the future. In August 2017, Mobileye became an Intel company in the largest Israeli acquisition deal ever of $15.3B. Today, Prof. Shashua is the CEO and CTO of Mobileye and a Senior Vice President of Intel Corporation leading Intel's Autonomous Driving Group. In 2010 Prof. Shashua co-founded OrCam which harnesses computer vision and artificial intelligence to assist people who are visually impaired or blind. The OrCam MyEye device is unique in its ability to provide visual aid to hundreds of millions of people, through a discreet wearable platform. Within its wide-ranging scope of capabilities, OrCam's device can read most texts (both indoors and outdoors) and learn to recognize thousands of new items and faces.

From Set to Theater: Reporting on the 3D Cinema Business and Technology Roadmaps

Tony Davis, RealD (United States)   [SD&A-388]


speaker photograph   Abstract:
Since the most recent incarnation of stereoscopic cinema began in 2005, the push for brighter, clearer, and more engaging 3D in theaters has not let up. Filmmakers continue to push the limits of the visual experience, and technology groups have been working on solutions that are not only beautiful, but also address long-standing problems in cinema. Audiences demand flawless and ever-improving experiences and will vote with their feet if theaters don't deliver on their expectations. RealD has been working with many partners throughout the industry to bring a better experience to audiences. This effort starts very early in the concept of a movie. The more a movie is designed for a real 3D experience, the better it will draw audiences in. There are early technical decisions to make, including native-capture 3D vs. post-conversion and, more recently, frame rate decisions. Later in post-production, more decisions can be made that have substantial impact on the viewer's experience. Finally, in theatrical exhibition, light is key. Brighter exhibition draws the audience in, enhances color perception, and can reveal the artistic intent of the filmmaker. New advancements in polarization-preserving screens and wide-throw light-recycling modulation systems promise to take stereoscopic theater experiences to a new level.

Tony Davis is the VP of Technology at RealD where he works with an outstanding team to perfect the cinema experience from set to screen. Tony Davis has a Masters in Electrical Engineering from Texas Tech University, specializing in advanced signal acquisition and processing. After several years working as a Technical Staff Member for Los Alamos National Laboratory, Mr. Davis was Director of Engineering for a highly successful line of medical and industrial X-ray computed tomography systems at 3M. Later, he was the founder of Tessive, a company dedicated to improvement of temporal representation in motion picture cameras.

What good is imperfect 3D?

Miriam Ross, Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand)   [SD&A-640]


speaker photograph   Abstract:
As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Stereoscopic Displays and Application Conference we encounter three decades of pioneering, exhilarating and steadfast research that has kept abreast of stereoscopy as it has moved into the digital era. For good reason, this research strives to enhance content delivery and the user experience. It strives for perfection. Or, as close to perfection as one can come when working with the complexities of binocular vision. Is there value, then, in glancing askew and looking for the moments in stereoscopy's lengthy history when perfection has not been the aim? What can an imperfect three-dimensional representation add to our understanding of how we use stereoscopy? In the 1850s, David Brewster asked viewers using the stereoscope to switch left and right eye images to look for inverted depth. He expected this process to confirm his visual theories but viewers became fascinated with the anomalies that occurred, when volumes would not invert and objects did not seem correctly positioned. More recently, Jean-Luc Godard's Adieu au langage (Goodbye to Language, 2014) diverged the cameras so dramatically that each eye was presented with a completely different scene. The rogue shot, painful to view, laid bare the very process of stereoscopic construction with little care for supporting the film's narrative. With all their imperfections, these playful approaches to stereoscopic imaging asked viewers to see in different ways and consider their own role in the process of perception. Spanning the 160 years between these examples are many more cases of 'imperfect 3D,' from stereoscopic painting to the new virtual reality. Each enriches the way viewers interact with stereoscopy and come to understand its value as a unique imaging system.

Beads of reality drip from pinpricks in space

Mark Bolas, Microsoft Corporation (United States)   [SD&A-653]


speaker photograph   Abstract:
As we engineer electronic imaging technologies to convince pairs of eyes to see virtual worlds, we realize that the ultimate challenge is to impel minds to yield to a reality that has been virtual all along. This talk explores the light-field as a model for how people create mental maps of reality, and how such maps are easily folded.

Mark Bolas loves perceiving and creating synthesized experiences. To feel, hear and touch experiences impossible in reality and yet grounded as designs that bring pleasure, meaning and a state of flow. His work with Ian McDowall, Eric Lorimer and David Eggleston at Fakespace Labs; Scott Fisher and Perry Hoberman at USC's School of Cinematic Arts; the team at USC's Institute for Creative Technologies; Niko Bolas at SonicBox; and Frank Wyatt, Dick Moore and Marc Dolson at UCSD informed results that led to his receipt of both the IEEE Virtual Reality Technical Achievement and Career Awards.

Light Fields and Light Stages for Photoreal Movies, Games, and Virtual Reality

Paul Debevec, Senior Scientist, Google (United States)


Paul Debevec will discuss the technology and production processes behind "Welcome to Light Fields", the first downloadable virtual reality experience based on light field capture techniques which allow the visual appearance of an explorable volume of space to be recorded and reprojected photorealistically in VR enabling full 6DOF head movement. The lightfields technique differs from conventional approaches such as 3D modelling and photogrammetry. Debevec will discuss the theory and application of the technique. Debevec will also discuss the Light Stage computational illumination and facial scanning systems which use geodesic spheres of inward-pointing LED lights as have been used to create digital actor effects in movies such as Avatar, Benjamin Button, and Gravity, and have recently been used to create photoreal digital actors based on real people in movies such as Furious 7, Blade Runner: 2049, and Ready Player One. Th lighting reproduction process of light stages allows omnidirectional lighting environments captured from the real world to be accurately reproduced in a studio, and has recently be extended with multispectral capabilities to enable LED lighting to accurately mimic the color rendition properties of daylight, incandescent, and mixed lighting environments. They have also recently used their full-body light stage in conjunction with natural language processing and automultiscopic video projection to record and project interactive conversations with survivors of the World War II Holocaust.

Paul Debevec is a Senior Scientist at Google VR, a member of GoogleVR's Daydream team, and Adjunct Research Professor of Computer Science in the Viterbi School of Engineering at the University of Southern California, working within the Vision and Graphics Laboratory at the USC Institute for Creative Technologies. Debevec's computer graphics research has been recognized with ACM SIGGRAPH's first Significant New Researcher Award in 2001 for "Creative and Innovative Work in the Field of Image-Based Modeling and Rendering", a Scientific and Engineering Academy Award in 2010 for "the design and engineering of the Light Stage capture devices and the image-based facial rendering system developed for character relighting in motion pictures" with Tim Hawkins, John Monos, and Mark Sagar, and the SMPTE Progress Medal in 2017 in recognition of his achievements and ongoing work in pioneering techniques for illuminating computer-generated objects based on measurement of real-world illumination and their effective commercial application in numerous Hollywood films. In 2014, he was profiled in The New Yorker magazine's "Pixel Perfect: The Scientist Behind the Digital Cloning of Actors" article by Margaret Talbot.
