3MT topic:    Generating Three-dimensional Maps: Confessions of an Arms Dealer

Discipline:       Computer Science
Faculty:    Engineering, Computer & Mathematical Sciences
Supervisors:  Prof. Anton van den Hengel, Dr. Anthony Dick, and Dr. Anders Eriksson

Project Summary:

Two technology giants, Google and Apple, are about to engage in a ferocious battle over how you and I will choose to navigate this planet. The turf war is over generating 3D maps of our environment, and integrating this technology into our lives. I am a computer scientist working in a field called Multiple-View Geometry, where I look at improving the underlying technology that makes the generation of 3D maps possible. In a manner of speaking, I am an arms dealer in this battle.
