Math/CS Coffee with Dr. Turner Whitted from NVIDIA

Turner Whitted, NVIDIA Research, presents "Visual Experience beyond Human Capacity and the Technology to Enable It".

Augmented reality promises to visually enhance our experiences in everyday life, but to do so it must conform to the constraints of everyday life. These include personal and social expectations which propagate backward all the way to architecture and mechanical and electrical design. Meeting these expectations poses challenges in circuitry, optics, mechanical design, psychology, and sociology which all must be addressed in concert.

Turner Whitted was a co-inventor of the signal processing algorithm for ClearType at Microsoft Research and invented recursive ray tracing for global illumination at Bell Laboratories. He co-founded Numerical Design Limited in 1983 and served as president and technical director until 1996.
