Colloquium Talk with Dr. Chloe LeGendre, February 2: Remain in Light: Realistic Augmented Imagery in the AI Era”

Dr. Chloe LeGendre, senior software engineer in Google Research, will give a virtual colloquium presentation, titled “Remain in Light: Realistic Augmented Imagery in the AI Era” on Friday, February 2, from 12:30 – 1:30 PM, which will be streamed in Science Complex P-101.  

See below for more information about our speaker.

Abstract: Augmented Reality (AR) blends real-world scenery with computer and artist generated imagery to unlock novel, creative experiences. In this talk, I will describe advances towards crafting AR imagery that seamlessly blends the real and virtual together, with a focus on matching scene lighting. Given the rapid pace of recent developments in image generation models, I will also share my perspective on these generative models as applied to AR experiences.

Speaker Bio: Chloe LeGendre is a senior software engineer in Google Research, where she is currently working on computational photography and high dynamic range imaging.
