Maverick is a research project-team dealing with image synthesis. We place ourselves at the end of the image production pipeline, for the generation and display of pictures. The pictures we generate are varied, and include data visualisation, rendering of virtual worlds, painting and drawings, edition of photographs and many others.
All these applications are sharing common research problems: ensuring that the important features are perceived, avoiding cluttering or aliasing, efficient internal data representation, etc.
Our central research theme is understanding what makes a picture useful, powerful and interesting for the viewer, and designing algorithms to create these pictures.
