We will be having our second prof talk of the term with Lesley Istead, on April 5, 3:30 pm in STC 0020. She will be talking about the problems faced, and algorithms used in the film industry to go from 2D to S3D. Come listen to the talk and enjoy some free food!

For the last 10 years, most blockbusters have been released in both 2D and stereoscopic 3D. The move from 2D to S3D is non-trivial and involves many new algorithms and technologies. But there are still many problems to be solved and many improvements that can still be made. In this talk, we'll explore artifacts of traditional 2D photography, methods to represent them comfortably in S3D, and their meaning in a 3D world.

By slowly varying the shapes of tiles in a tiling, it's possible to create fun and interesting abstract animations. Many of these animations are a good fit for the genre of looping mathematical GIFs that proliferate in social media. In this talk, I'll introduce a few core concepts from tiling theory and then discuss techniques for constructing tilings that evolve in space or in time.
