Presenter: Alex Hornstein, Co-Founder and CTO
Talk Topic: Holographic Visualization in Scientific Research
It’s the year 2020, and we have developed an incredible ability to capture 3-dimensional imagery of the world at scales from microscopic to astronomical. Our advances in imaging have given us powerful ways to examine, model and understand the natural world, but viewing and sharing spatial data with colleagues is still a challenge.
Looking Glass Factory is a Brooklyn-based company that is a world leader in holographic display. Since the company’s inception, Looking Glass has worked with researchers around the world to take complex, three dimensional data into the real world, for the first time allowing groups of people to view and interact with both data and one another. Looking Glass founder and CTO Alex Hornstein will share work that Looking Glass has done together with scientific researchers across a variety of fields, as well as a set of live demos where attendees can view and interact with three-dimensional scenes in Looking Glass displays*. Alex will also share some of the principals of how Looking Glass’ lightfield technology works, and techniques that researchers from all sides of the scientific community are using to capture and display lightfield imagery of their work.
