Christine Guillemot, research director at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique research centre, has just been awarded a European Research Council Advanced Grant. The goal of the programme is to provide talented researchers with the means to conduct a ground-breaking, high-risk five-year exploratory research project in Europe independent of an established scientific programme or national or disciplinary scientific development strategy.
Epitomized by the Lytro, a new breed of so-called plenoptic or light field cameras allow to simultaneously capture multiple images of one single scene. This rich visual material can be edited in order to pick from different possible focuses, different depths of field and even different lens apertures. However, the current software line-up would be hard-pressed to process such files due to their dimensionality and complexity. Inria scientist Christine Guillemot has been awarded an Advanced Grant by the European Research Council (ERC) in order to tackle this unprecedented challenge and build algorithms for next-generation photo and video applications using light fields.
The television of the future will offer viewers the option to choose among many viewpoints to follow the action according to their preferences. Around the world, researchers are already imagining algorithms that will make it possible to broadcast such video. But all come up against the same problem: the lack of raw material for testing. There simply aren’t recordings that include multiple and simultaneous viewpoints for large-scale scenes. Prior to any development, this body of images must be created. This is precisely the objective of Atep, a technology development initiative coordinated by researcher Thomas Maugey at the Inria Rennes – Bretagne Atlantique centre.
Christine Guillemot, director of research at Inria and head of SIROCCO research project team, will receive in september during the international conference EUSIPCO 2019, the 2019 Eurasip Technical Achievement Award. Each year, this award honors a scientist who, over a period of years, has made outstanding technical contributions to theory or practice in technical areas within the scope of the Society, as demonstrated by publications, patents, or recognized impact in this field. Christine Guillemot is rewarded for her contributions to video processing for compression and inverse problems.
