    The paradigm for image retrieval has evolved from low-level image representations to semantic concept models to higher-level semantic inferences. UCSD's Statistical Visual Computing Laboratory has developed effective techniques for each paradigm that equate retrieval with classification and strive for minimum-probability-of-error optimality.

    Solid evidence of virtual reality's benefits has graduated from impressive visual demonstrations to producing results in practical applications. Further, a realistic experience is no longer immersion's sole asset. Empirical studies show that various components of immersion provide other benefits - full immersion is not always necessary. The goal of immersive virtual environments (VEs) was to let t... View full abstract»

    A new class of 3D displays uses a digital projector and a cloud of passive optical scatterers etched in a glass cube with laser-induced damage.These inexpensive devices can be used to display simple 3D objects, extend videogames to three dimensions, and create 3D avatars. Over the past century, researchers have worked vigorously to create a device that can display realistic high-resolution 3D cont... View full abstract»
