Talk Title: CS Study abroad in Budapest
Presenter: Gergely Vass, lecturer of Computer Vision for Digital Film Post-Production
Time and location: Monday, March 11 at 12:15pm in E219 Engineering Quad.
An upcoming talk will be presented on campus to encourage students to consider a great new study abroad program, Aquincum Institute of Technology BUDAPEST, for students interested in computing, design, computational biology, and IT entrepreneurship. The presenter - Gergely Vass, an ex-VFX artist turned into software engineer - is a lecturer at the AIT study abroad program. He works at Colorfront, a post-production studio and software development company, recently awarded by the Primetime Engineering Emmy from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. In his presentation some of the typical applications of computer vision techniques in movie post-production are reviewed. Students will learn how invisible effects such as digital set-replacement allow filmmakers to extend their "visual vocabulary".
Pizza and small treats from Hungary will be served!
