Dr. Ilke Demir

Manual creation of massive and detailed 3D models may take weeks or months, even for experienced artists. In contrast, generative algorithms enable efficiently creating 3D models coherent with the reality, as good approximations of the real world. In this talk, I will introduce "proceduralization" to discover generative representations from 2D and 3D data for synthesis, modeling, and reconstruction; combining computer vision, machine learning, and computational geometry approaches. The talk will include applications for content creation, interactive editing, localization, mapping, and reconstruction.

Dr. Ilke Demir is a Senior Staff Researcher at Intel. She leads their research efforts on 3D vision approaches in the world's largest volumetric capture stage at Intel Studios. Previously, Dr. Demir worked at Facebook, developing breakthrough technology on generative street addresses.  Dr. Demir earned a B.S. degree in Computer Engineering from Middle East Technical University, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from Purdue University.
