Intel Corporation has donated $267,000 worth of Intel SandyBridge Xeon X7560 processors and computing equipment in support of Visual Computing research at Cornell University. The resources will help support Cornell graphics and vision researchers involved in the new Intel Science and Technology Center for Visual Computing, which includes professors Kavita Bala, Donald Greenberg, Doug James, Stephen Marschner, and Noah Snavely. The equipment will be used to tackle problems from physics-based sound rendering and vision-based modeling of homes and urban environments, to scalable visual rendering and virtual characters, and game-driven content creation.
