1 Relations between Academia and Industry Speaker: Rick Szeliski Organizer: David Lowe Wednesday, August 24th

2 Computer Vision at Microsoft Photo editing (stitching, PhotoFuse, GrabCut) Photo Tourism → Photosynth Maps: photogrammetry, stitching Mobile recognition: product search, OCR Mobile (computational) photography Kinect Medical image analysis (Amalga)

3 Tech transfer at Microsoft “Classic” 3-stage push model: 1.Research papers (stitching, PhotoMontage, Grab Cut, Photo Tourism) 2.Prototype or incubation (ICE, GroupShot, Photosynth, Lincoln) 3.Product But also works other way (product pull): – Kinect (secret project, hand-selected researchers) – Amalga medical image analysis

4 Microsoft - Academia Microsoft Research Connections Microsoft Research Faculty Fellows Microsoft Research PhD Fellows Internships Faculty Summit

5 Improving relations (I) More accessible tutorials / teaching materials for non-researchers: – tutorials at conferences (will people attend?) – on-line courses, exercises Better libraries: – standard libraries (like OpenGL) – free, non-commercial, commercial licenses Researcher training: – efficient algorithms & coding (software engr.) – scenario-driven research – technical communications

6 Improving relations (II) More information flow industry → academia – panels at conferences – David’s list of computer vision companies encourage groups to list of areas and open problems, e.g., http://www.disneyresearch.com/research/index.htm http://www.disneyresearch.com/research/index.htm Funding models and IP – tough one: lots of models, contracts vs. open gifts – fellowships (few), internships (many) – IP tricky both ways
