 Principles of Visual Perception and Its Applications in Computer Graphics

Art & Design Full Day | Intermediate

An introduction to the study of visual perception and its applications in computer graphics. This course surveys the field of visual psychophysics and presents fundamental findings on how we perceive light, color, pattern, motion, texture, shape, and depth. These experimental results are presented in the context of how they can be used in real applications in computer graphics, including realistic image synthesis, scientific and information visualization, virtual environments, and graphic design.

Who Should Attend
Graphics researchers and practitioners who want to understand how the images they create are interpreted by the human visual system.
