Talk by Oded Stein, Thursday, May 30th, 11am, BC 229


In this talk we will take a second look at a few classical geometry processing problems, and think about ways to get just a little bit more information out of the data that is at our disposal. We will tackle the reconstruction of surfaces from signed distance functions, the coloring of vector graphics images, and the volumetric correspondence problem. In each of these tasks, we will ask ourselves "Have we really used all the information that we have been given?", and investigate how we can make our geometry methods less wasteful.
