In today's world, visual computing techniques that integrate 2D and 3D image processing, machine learning, 3D graphics and modelling technologies are taking centre stage in the progress of different disciplines. The focus of this talk will be on some of the recent developments in the field of visual computing particularly concentrating on the work being carried out at the Centre for Visual Computing at University of Bradford. Particularly, the focus will be on new technologies for processing large data sets in 3D, visualisation and analysis. This talk will also focus on some of the challenges in the investigated topics and will identify open research problems that need to be resolved along with some future research directions.
Professor Hassan Ugail is the director for the Centre for Visual Computing at University of Bradford, UK. Prof. Ugail has a first class BSc Honours degree in Mathematics from King’s College London and a PhD in the field of geometric design from the School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds. Prof. Ugail's research interests include geometric modelling, functional design, applications of geometric modelling to real time interactive and parametric design as well as applications of geometric modelling to general engineering problems. He has completed a number of funded projects in these areas of research and published heavily in these fields. He is also heavily involved in knowledge transfer activities and has several patents on novel techniques relating to geometry modelling, animation and 3D data exchange. He has also won the University of Bradford Vice-Chancellor’s Excellence in Knowledge Transfer Award for his outstanding contribution to research and knowledge transfer activities.
