  • Title: Creating and Rendering Images based on the Study of Perception

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • University of California Berkeley (United States) - Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department (EECS) - Maneesh Agrawala

  • Start year: 2014

  • The CRISP collaboration aims at developing novel techniques to create and manipulate effective numerical imagery. We adopt a multidisciplinary approach, focusing on understanding how people create and perceive images, on developing new rendering algorithms based on this understanding, and on building interactive tools that enable users to efficiently produce the images they have in mind. The participants of CRISP share complementary expertise in computer graphics, human computer interaction and human visual perception. In 2016, the CRISP collaboration supported the postdoc of George Koulieris, who spent 6 months at UC Berkeley and is now at Inria. Johanna Delanoy also spent 2 weeks at UC Berkeley to collaborate with Alexei Efros.

Inria International Partners

Informal International Partners

Canada. A. Bousseau collaborates regularly with the University of Toronto (K. Singh) and the University of British Columbia (A. Sheffer).

India. A. Bousseau collaborates with Vinay Namboodiri from IIT Kanpur and hosted several of his students for internships (Rahul Arora and Srinivasa Rao Gadhamchetty).

UK. G. Drettakis collaborates with UCL in the context of the CR-PLAY projects, resulting in a publication on indoor image-based rendering [6].

United States. We regularly collaborate with Adobe Research. Most recently, G. Drettakis worked with Eli Shechtman and Sylvain Paris on multi-view inpainting [13]. We also collaborate with Daniel Aliaga from Purdue University on sketch-based procedural modeling [8].
