What and Who
Title:Computational Single-photon Imaging
Speaker:Gordon Wetzstein
coming from:Stanford University
Speakers Bio:Gordon Wetzstein is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Computer Science at Stanford University. He is the leader of the Stanford Computational Imaging Lab, an interdisciplinary research group focused on advancing imaging, microscopy, and display systems. At the intersection of computer graphics, machine vision, optics, scientific computing, and perception, Prof. Wetzstein's research has a wide range of applications in next-generation consumer electronics, scientific imaging, human-computer interaction, remote sensing, and many other areas. Prior to joining Stanford in 2014, Prof. Wetzstein was a Research Scientist in the Camera Culture Group at the MIT Media Lab. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia in 2011 and graduated with Honors from the Bauhaus in Weimar, Germany before that. He is the recipient of an Alain Fournier Ph.D. Dissertation Award, an NSF CAREER Award, an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, an ACM SIGGRAPH Significant New Researcher Award, a Terman Fellowship, an Okawa Research Grant, the Electronic Imaging Scientist of the Year 2017 Award, and a Laval Virtual Award as well as Best Paper and Demo Awards at ICCP 2011, 2014, and 2016 and at ICIP 2016.

Time-of-flight imaging and LIDAR systems enable 3D scene acquisition at long range using active illumination. This is useful for autonomous driving, robotic vision, human-computer interaction and many other applications. The technological requirements on these imaging systems are extreme: individual photon events need to be recorded and time-stamped at a picosecond timescale, which is facilitated by emerging single-photon detectors. In this talk, we discuss a new class of computational cameras based on single-photon detectors. These enable efficient ways for non-line-of-sight imaging (i.e., looking around corners) and efficient depth sensing as well as other unprecedented imaging modalities.
