DATE: Wednesday, November 10, 2021
FROM: 7:00pm-9:00pm EST
The Washington DC Chapter of ACM SIGGRAPH is proud to present, James K. Hahn, Professor in the Department of Computer Science and a Professor of Pediatrics in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at George Washington University. Professor Hahn will discuss his research journey starting as a doctoral student in the mid 1980’s, during what could arguably be called the “Golden Age of Computer Graphics”, to his current position as a professor of Computer Science with a joint appointment as professor in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at George Washington University. He will present some of the work that has been conducted in his laboratory, especially, on the use of computer graphics in the medical/health domain. This includes motion control for animation, sound synchronized to motions, 4D reconstruction of body/motion from optical scans, and VR simulators. The talk will illustrate the wide diversity of disciplines that benefit from computer graphics. (https://icg.gwu.edu/)
