Introduction to the Visual Computing Lab
Visual Computing Lab at KAIST focuses on solving the challenges in high-fidelity representation in computer graphics. The objective of our research is to produce computer graphics imagery more realistic than photographs, virtually yielding identical perception of the real world appearance. The research interests of KAIST-VCLAB include high-performance 3D imaging, color & visual perception, and interactive computer graphics, developing various software/hardware tools.


High-Performance 3D Imaging
We introduced an end-to-end measurement system to capture hyperspectral data on 3D objects at high spectral/spatial resolution (presented at ACM SIGGRAPH 2012).

Color & Visual Perception
We developed novel color appearance models that not only predict spatially-varying human visual perception but are also directly applicable to HDR imaging (presented at ACM SIGGRAPH 2009 & 2011).

Interactive Graphics
We introduced a novel approach to presenting context, a lightweight conceptual design system. We also exploit indirect illumination of dynamic scenes (presented at ACM SIGGRAPH Asia 2008 & 2011).
