«Visual Computing — a best practice from Vienna»



On December 7, 2016, Professor Werner Purgathofer, Head of Institute of Computer Graphics and Algorithms, Faculty of Informatics, Vienna University of Technology (TU Wien: Technische Universität Wien) delivered a guest lecture at research seminar of School of business-informatics on topic: Visual Computing — a best practice from Vienna. Application area peculiarities and problems, education and training approaches and programs,
research and development, hot topics and trends (the best practice from TU Wien and VRVis)
 
Abstract:
Visual Computing deals with the acquisition, representation, processing, analysis, synthesis and use of visual information, i.e. of images and image sequences in the temporal and spatial context. The concept of visual computing has emerged through the methodological convergence of the areas of image processing, computer vision, computer graphics, visualization and human-machine interaction, partly due to the need for new fields such as augmented and virtual reality, data analytics and machine learning on these technologies.
In his pretty comprehensive talk, professor Werner Purgathofer — one of leading European experts in visual computing — suggests answers to the following questions. How can such a complex multi-disciplinary area be studied? How can we educate and train specialists for this area? What are approaches to it? What are/could be major educational components of a typical master program in visual computing? What are prospects for visual computing specialists in an open labor market? What are main science and research directions in visual computing? What are prospective application areas that benefit most from introduction of visual computing technologies and solutions? What are major current and future developments in the international community of visual computing?
