The group submitted a successful NVIDIA Data Science GPU grant and received a Titan V card today. Tom plans on using it for an upcoming project into ML texture synthesis for urban environments (and only occasionally use it for gaming).
The Alan Turing Institute (ATI) Visualization interest group (VizTIG) had their 1st Annual Symposium last Friday (13th Sep). The programme was packed full of interesting talks, including one on Topological analysis of data (Hamish Carr) and another on Visualizing data profiles and analysis pipelines (Roy Ruddle).
A full house from industry and academia spent 3 hours engrossed in the intricacies of analysing car parking fines, on this CPD course that was organised and delivered by Roy Ruddle, in collaboration with Tableau. The training was part of the 1st Annual Symposium of the Alan Turing Institute’s Visualization interest group (VizTIG).
it was our pleasure to welcome future students to our open days last week. VCG put in a strong showing with student projects, research demos, and a our of faculty on had to discuss our HPG courses! Photos follow.
We are excited to be part of the launch of a new initiative across the university to spearhead research into the use of immersive technologies – CIT. Immersive technologies is an umbrella term for virtual reality, augment reality, simulators, video games, and everything in between. Our very own Prof. Roy was on hand to introduce us…
update: the deadline for the below opportunity has now passed…still you can get in touch with tom if you want to study a similar topic. Interested in urban reconstruction? Want to live in Cyprus (we’re having a very cold, wet, summer here in Leeds)? I’m co-supervising a PhD with Melinos Averkiou into urban semantic understanding. Full details…
Many thanks to Katherine for the wonderful new group photo! Everyone is looking a little silly, but it’s great to have an image of (almost) all of us in one place. We’ll update it when He’s back from his travels…
Many thanks to Roy for his talk today demonstrating the Leeds Virtual Microscope project to commemorate the decommissioning of this fantastic piece of equipment. Abstract: Our original 6.08 Powerwall is about to be decommissioned. This talk will describe the 13-year journey, from left-over funds, to a surprise encounter about a killer application, award-winning research and…
In a interesting turn of events, the school has decided to use an image from one of my late-night CityEngine to Blender debugging runs to illustrate “world-leading research”. I (twak) couldn’t quite figure out how to get coloured shader graphics in the Cycles render engine, but other shaders (like “glow-very-blue”) worked just fine. Update 10.19….
Via the magic of json and javascript, the website now has a demo mode, as well as matching shortcode. The full screen demo even has an extreme mode for those who like to live on the edge (and have sufficient bandwidth).
