    Computational and Compressive Displays

    Computational photography has become an increasingly active area of
    research within the computer graphics community. Within the few last
    years, the amount of research has grown tremendously with dozens of
    published papers per year in a variety of vision, optics, and graphics
    venues. A similar trend can be seen in the emerging field of
    computational displays - spurred by the widespread availability of
    precise optical and material fabrication technologies, the research
    community has begun to investigate the joint design of display optics
    and computational processing. In this talk I will highlight recent
    work on computational and compressive displays to achieve glasses-free
    3D effects, high dynamic range, and superresolution.

    PiCam: An Ultra-Thin High Performance Monolithic Camera Array

    We present PiCam, a thin monolithic camera array that captures light fields and synthesizes high resolution images along with scene depth, through integrated parallax detection and superresolution. The camera is passive, supporting both stills and video, low light capable, and small enough to be included in mobile devices including smartphones.

    Coded Time of Flight Cameras: Sparse Deconvolution to Address Multipath Interference and Recover Time Profiles

    Time of flight cameras produce real-time range maps at a relatively
    low cost using continuous wave amplitude modulation and demodulation. In this paper, we address the open problem of multipath interference and time profile generation. Our technique hinges on a sparsity-based deconvolution.
