“Rome in a Day” is Computing Research Highlight of the Week

rome_smallThe Computing Research Association and the Computing Community Consortium have selected UW CSE’s Rome in a Day project as the Computing Research Highlight of the Week.

“Several years ago, a collaboration between computer graphics and computer vision researchers at the University of Washington and Microsoft yielded Photosynth, a revolution in organizing and navigating digital photographs.

“Now, that same collaboration has yielded Rome In A Day, which reconstructs entire cities from images harvested from the web, in less than a day of computation time per city.”
