Title: The Lytro Consumer Light Field Camera

Time: 4:15 pm to 5:15 pm


Location: Packard 101


Talk Abstract: Lytro is a startup in Mountain View that has recently
introduced the first light field camera for consumers. Light field cameras
provide many new capabilities, including the ability to focus pictures after
the shot is taken. The underlying technology is based on founder Ren Ng's
PhD dissertation on light field photography, which he completed at Stanford
in 2006. This talk will present the company, technology and product. 


Speaker's Biography: Ren Ng is the founder and CEO of Lytro, and developed
the underlying technology during grad school. Ren's Ph.D. research on light
field technology earned the field's top honor, the ACM Doctoral Dissertation
Award for best thesis in computer science and engineering, as well as
Stanford University's Arthur Samuel Award for Best Ph.D. Dissertation. Ren
holds a Ph.D. in computer science and a B.S. in mathematical and
computational science from Stanford University.
