CAM Colloquium: Rekha Thomas (Washington) - Algebraic Vision

Friday, September 18, 2015 at 3:30pm

Frank H. T. Rhodes Hall, 655

Reconstructing a three-dimensional scene from two-dimensional images of it is a fundamental problem in computer vision. Real solutions to systems of polynomials play a key role in solving this problem. In this talk I will explain recent work that attempts to bring in tools from algebraic geometry and polynomial optimization to some of the foundational problems in 3D computer vision with a particular focus on the most basic problem of reconstruction from two images.
