IEEE CEDA Distinguished Speaker Luncheon: Simulation Technologies for Image Systems Engineering
Brian Wandell - Stanford Univ., Stanford, CA

The use of imaging systems has grown enormously over the last several decades; these systems are an essential component in mobile communication, medicine, and automotive applications. As part of this growth the complexity of imaging systems hardware, from optics to electronics, has increased dramatically, making software prototyping an essential tool for the design and evaluation of systems and components. I will describe several examples for image systems engineering applications. This is a good moment to consider how academia and industry might combine to create an image systems simulation infrastructure that speeds the development of new systems for the many opportunities that will arise over the next few decades.
Biography: Brian A. Wandell is the first Isaac and Madeline Stein Family Professor at Stanford University. He joined the Psychology faculty in 1979 and is a member, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering, and Ophthalmology. He is Director of the Center for Cognitive and Neurobiological Imaging, and Deputy Director of the Wu Tsai Neuroscience Institute. Wandell’s research uses magnetic resonance imaging and software simulations for basic and applied research spanning human visual perception, brain development, and image systems simulations.
