Use the error, Luke!

Who and when?
Prof. Dr. Martin Eisemann, from the TH Cologne, is going to visit our University on Thursday, November 23rd. His talk will start at 2 pm in the Visual Computing Lab C 061.

Topic: Use the error, Luke!
In this talk I will present some of the research I was involved in during the last years. The global scope of it is the insight that errors in stochastic rendering, as e.g. from Monte Carlo simulations using too few samples, is something we shouldn’t be afraid of but rather use it to guide our rendering towards the correct solution. I will talk about how to select the best image filter for noise removal in Monte Carlo renderings and how to investigate a 3D scene to find the actual causes of rendering artifacts and what we can do to suppress them.
