  • Liu, Siying (2016-11-04)
    An image is a projection of the three-dimensional world taken at an instance in space and time. Its formation involves a complex interplay between geometry, illumination and material properties of objects in the scene. ...

  • Bray, Nicholas C. (2010-08-20)
    Abstract Graphics processing units (GPUs) have tremendous computing power, but are hard to program. Most GPU programming languages are extremely low level; no one has run a general-purpose high-level language on a GPU. ...

  • Meyer, Gregory Paul (2016-11-22)
    We present a method for real-time 3D face localization and verification using a consumer-grade depth camera. Our approach consists of three parts: face detection, head pose estimation, and face verification. Face detection ...
