There is a big difference between looking at a photo and actually being there, experiencing the moment in person. While we take this difference for granted today, this gap will close dramatically over the next few years. Professor Seitz will describe technology for immersive photography where viewers feel like they ARE there-by leveraging camera arrays, computer vision algorithms, novel streaming technologies, and virtual reality headsets. Using 360-degree virtual reality video to capture sights and sounds for a fully encompassing experience, you may be temporarily transported to somewhere that you're really not!
