AutoCollage: From Paper to Product
Speaker(s) : Alisson Sol (Microsoft)
Every year thousands of technical papers are published, some improving on previous research results, and some proposing innovations. As with other areas, the field of digital image processing experiences a significant delay between what is demonstrated in technical symposiums and what is available in the market. This presentation focuses on 3 main topics, with emphasis in the digital image processing technologies: a) What are the differences between demo software and product line software?
b) How researchers can contribute to bring technology to market quickly.
c) What are companies doing to bringing innovation to customers as quick as possible.
For each of the focus points there will be examples of problems and solutions, based on real experiences of getting published papers and developing products based on the paper findings.
