Building on last year’s success, GI 2016 will again include an Invited Speaker Series, featuring an additional seven dynamic speakers from graphics, HCI and visualization. These talks will be in addition to the two keynote speakers, and the three award talks from winners of the 2016 CHCCS Achievement Award and the 2015 Bill Buxton and Alain Fournier Ph.D. Dissertation awards.

Finding Structure in Large Collections of 3D Models — Vladimir G. Kim (Adobe Research)

As large repositories of 3D shape collections grow, understanding the geometric data, especially encoding the inter-model similarity, their variations, semantics and functionality, is of central importance. My research addresses the challenge of deriving probabilistic models that capture common structure in large, unorganized, and diverse collections of 3D polygonal shapes. In my talk I will present several such models and their applications. I will cover basic tools for establishing relationships between models in highly heterogeneous datasets: correspondences, consistent segmentation, part hierarchies, and human-centric analysis. I will demonstrate how these analysis results can be used to learn a structural prior that can be used for organizing big shape repositories, reconstructing accurate and complete geometry from partial RGB-D scans.
