RI SEMINAR -- Jon Webb and C. Lawrence Zitnick


Stereo vision has traditionally been formulated in terms of an image-based matching process. In spite of the best efforts of some of the greatest minds in computer vision, stereo vision formulated in this way remains unreliable, inaccurate, and inefficient. We have reformulated it in terms of three-dimensional surface extraction. In this formulation stereo vision can be made reliable, accurate, and fast, as will be demonstrated.
