Lance Williams and his legacy to Graphics
Luiz Velho

Quarta-feira, 6 de setembro de 2017, 13:30
Auditorio 3

We will honor Lance Williams and present his contributions to the field of Computer Graphics.

He received an Academy Award in 2002 for his “pioneering influence in the field of computer-generated animation and effects,” and the ACM SIGGRAPH Coons Award in 2001 for “outstanding creative contributions to creative graphics.”

Lance was a giant in graphics. He is best known for inventing texture mip-mapping, shadow mapping, and image-based rendering.

Every time we watch a movie, play a video game, or use Google Street View, we are benefiting from these deeply foundational inventions.
