The multi-university Intel Science and Technology Center for Visual Computing was launched this Spring 2011, and will support numerous Cornell research projects led by graphics and vision professors: Kavita Bala, Steve Marschner, Noah Snavely, Doug James, and Donald Greenberg. Projects will address a wide range of long-term problems from scalable visual rendering and virtual characters, to physics-based sound rendering and vision-based modeling of homes and urban environments, and game-driven content creation.
