Resumo

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.
