The Computational Photography MOOC offering in Coursera came to a close with the following final announcement (abridged here) on May 7, 2013. Computational photographers: Thanks for joining us for an engaging 5 weeks of collaboratively learning the wonderful aspects of computational photography. We bid you all farewell now and hope to see some of you […]
We present a novel data-driven technique for radiometric self-calibration of video from an unknown camera. Our approach self-calibrates radiometric variations in video, and is applied as a post-process; there is no need to access the camera, and in particular, it is applicable to internet videos.
We are live! Welcome to the course website! As you take a look around, there are a few things we want to bring to your attention: 1. Do note that while this is an introductory class, we do require that you have working knowledge of college level mathematics, which includes concepts like Linear Algebra and […]
