CS/PIMS/Vivarium Seminar: "Finding Objects with Dynamically Deformable Models", by Dr. Klaus D. Toennies, University Magdeburg 
TASC 9204 West
Thursday, January 24, 2008 - 13:30

Abstract: For generic 3D sampling, the Body Centered Cubic (BCC) lattice and the Face Centered Cubic (FCC) lattice are significantly superior to the traditionally popular Cartesian Cubic (CC) lattice. Motivated by the goal of high visual fidelity in the visualization community, this thesis investigates the relative perceptual merits of high quality reconstruction filters for CC, BCC, and FCC sampled data. We recruited 24 participants and gave them pairs of images to discriminate.

Abstract: The Body Centered Cubic (BCC) and Face Centered Cubic (FCC) lattices along with a set of box splines for sampling and reconstruction of trivariate functions are proposed. The BCC lattice is demonstrated to be the optimal choice of a pattern for generic sampling purposes. While the FCC lattice is the second best choice for this purpose, both FCC and BCC lattices signi?cantly outperform the accuracy of the commonly-used Cartesian 3-D lattice.

CS/PIMS Distinguished Lecture: Data Driven Algorithm Design 
Abstract: Motivated by the need to cope with data that is massive, high-dimensional, noisy, uncertain, unevenly priced, low-entropic, or all of the above, algorithm design is undergoing profound changes. I will discuss some of these developments; in particular, sublinear algorithms, online reconstruction, self-improving algorithms, and dimension reduction.
