As the field of imaging science has evolved, so has RIT's world-renowned program by the same name. Grown out of RIT's photo science curriculum and transformed into the internationally recognized Chester F.
When Jeffrey Harris began his career at the Central Intelligence Agency 35 years ago, his first job was to process rolls of long thin film from reconnaissance satellites.
Imagine having 3D models at the ready for better understanding of war zones, or to highlight disaster impact such as building damage, or even to develop a realistic 3D gaming environment of downtown Rochester, for example.
For the first time in RIT's Big Shot history, the nighttime community photography project entered a new dimension of the 3D kind.
In a world where people are constantly plugged in, it's important to understand the experiences we have with digital media. RIT's new Center for Media, Arts, Games, Interaction and Creativity (MAGIC) hopes to blur the lines between the arts and sciences, and between technology and expression.
Computer scientist Hans-Peter Bischof produces highly choreographed visualizations to illustrate complicated and complex processes like the merger of black holes.
Using visualization to convey complex concepts such as the origins of black holes and gravitational pull of particles in the universe was a main goal of AstroDance, an innovative performance group that used live dancers, narration, multimedia imagery, and film to help teach its audiences about astrophysics.
The eyes are the windows into the soul. Variations of this ancient proverb have been used in the works of numerous poets and authors, including William Shakespeare.
Unraveling the mysteries of the human body and illustrating those findings in a scientifically accurate and visually spectacular fashion is the goal of the Human Visualization Project.
When looking at a computer screen or a photograph, the human eye is naturally drawn to faces, or regions of bright color or high contrast.
A persistent challenge in image segmentation technology is to develop a system that can distinguish objects with the precision of the human eye and the processing capacity of the human brain. Developing computer applications to recognize, extract, and classify distinguishing characteristics of static and video images for image segmentation is a challenge being met by RIT researchers.
As imaging technologies become more sophisticated, the role and importance of today's medical illustrator is increasing dramatically.
RIT scientist Don Figer, director of the Center for Detectors, is collaborating with Raytheon Visions Systems to advance a new family of large-format infrared detectors grown on silicon wafer substrates.
