CS Extras: The Mathematical Image-Synthesis Toolkit

At 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, 25 September 2014, we will have a presentation from the Summer 2014 Glimmer research students about their work building a very different kind of computer graphics application.

Title: MIST, The Mathematical Image-Synthesis Toolkit
Presenters: Eileen Fordham '17, Halley Freger '17, Amanda Hinchman-Dominguez '17, Alex Mitchell '17, Victoria Tsou '16, Earnest Wheeler '16, and Zoe Wolter '16
Where: Science 3821
When: 4:30 p.m., Thursday, 25 September 2014
Snacks in the commons at 4:15 p.m.

Summary: Have you ever wondered what it might mean to add or multiply two images? While the concept may seem a bit strange, there's great power in a model in which you can synthesize new images by doing math on other images. We describe the design and implementation of a Web-based computer graphics application that lets you build complex images and animations by starting with a few basic images and applying mathematical operations to those images. We also consider the relevant issues of making a modern Web application - building community, integrating with social media services, and gathering and applying usage data.
