Computationally Intensive Imaging

I gave a talk on humanities imaging interests at the Computationally Intensive Imaging USRG meeting today. We discussed possibilities for supercomputing based visualisation, and the new e-infrastructure south consortium. We also talked about the results from various Humanities trials of the mu-Vis Centre’s CT facilities, and some photographic imaging such as RTI. The group also includes expertise in computer vision and we discussed an ongoing project applying computer vision tools to archaeological data. There are also some interesting possibilities for collaborations in terms of high resolution surface imaging of objects such as musical instruments, manuscripts and archaeological objects.
