Graphics, Capture and Massively Parallel Computing
Please note that Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Goesele has left TU Darmstadt and is now working as a research scientist at Facebook. Any question about GCC should be addressed to Stefan Guthe or the Department of Computer Science.
The main focus of our research interest is the development of digitization methods for all aspects of the real world. This includes capturing geometry, surface color and several other attributes, e.g. reflectance properties of objects. Most of our methods perform the reconstruction solely on photographs that have been taken under controlled conditions (such as constant lighting and known camera parameters). Our latest developments, however, are capable of dealing with photos taken under uncontrolled conditions, for example images from community photo collections such as flickr.
Beyond that, we are interested in massively parallel computing to exploit the full potential of nowadays graphics hardware to solve computationally expensive problems in various areas, for example visual computing and bio informatics.
