Computational imaging systems are based on the joint design of optics and associated image reconstruction algorithms. Of particular interest in recent years has been the development of end-to-end learned “Deep Optics” systems that use differentiable optical simulation in combination with backpropagation to simultaneously learn optical design and deep network post-processing for applications such as hyperspectral imaging, HDR, or extended depth of field. In this talk I will in particular focus on new developments that expand the design space of such systems from simple DOE optics to compound refractive optics and mixtures of different types of optical components.
Dr Evan Peng is an Assistant Professor at The University of Hong Kong. Before this, he was a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the Computational Imaging Laboratory, Stanford University, and received a PhD in Computer Science from Imager Lab, the University of British Columbia. During the PhD, he was a Visiting Student Researcher at Visual Computing Center, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. He received both his MSc and BS in Optical Science and Engineering from Zhejiang University.
His research interest lies in the interdisciplinary field of Optics, Graphics, Vision, and Artificial Intelligence, particularly with the focus of : Computational Optics, Photography, Sensing, and Display; Holographic Imaging/Display & VR/AR/MR; Low-level Computer Vision; Inverse Rendering; Human-centered Visual & Sensory Systems.
