New Projects

Posted on October 20, 2010 by Raffi

This semester I’m very excited to be working on two projects that lie at the intersection of computer graphics and other fields. Firstly, I’ve begun work on my M.S. thesis project, which is to explore the perceptual impact of various motion blur techniques in distribution ray tracing. I will be posting updates of our progress on the project page.

Secondly, I’m working on a project to automatically generate ray-traced 3D fractal art using AI machine learning techniques. The program will learn over time the types of images that are visually pleasing, and then use that information for tuning the parameters for generating successive generations of images. I’ve posted a description of the project on this page and will be adding the generated images once the machine learning implementation is completed.
