Computational Methods for Immersive Perception

Abstract: Immersive content authoring and consumption are critical components for the next generation of VR and AR platforms. It includes real-time rendering/interface software, and display hardware.

In this talk, I will present my recent research on understanding and (more importantly) leveraging human perceptual factors, such as locomotion, accommodation and foveation, for fundamental geometry/imaging/rendering algorithms and practical applications, such as VR walk-through and computationally foveated displays.

Biography: Qi Sun is a 5th year Ph.D. student at Stony Brook University, advised by Distinguished Professor Arie Kaufman. Before this, he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from Shandong University, China. During Ph.D. study, he interned at NVIDIA Research and Adobe Research. His research interests lie in computer graphics, virtual/ augmented reality and scientific visualization, particularly bridging human perception factors and fundamental algorithms such as real-time rendering, VR locomotion and computational display.
