Computer Science and Illusion: A Computational View of the Interpretation and Manipulation of Images. (In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Institut für Klassische Archäologie der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München)

Andrew Blake's lecture "Computer Science and Illusion" will explore some connections between visual perception, geometry, and computer processing of images. It will touch on: perspective in drawings and how a computer can understand it; analysis of perspective in certain paintings; perspective and stereo vision; colour illusions and Edwin Land. Finally there will be demonstrations of how the understanding of visual perspective, colour and texture has helped to produce more powerful tools for manipulating images by computer.
