||Hertz Fellow Avideh Zakhor Maps Indoor Environments One Step at a Time
As anyone who’s used Google Street View with a virtual reality headset or played any of the latest first-person video games can attest, immersive 3D environments can blur the lines between the real world and the computer-generated one.
The technology making this possible owes a debt of gratitude to the work of Hertz Fellow Avideh Zakhor, a professor of electrical engineering and computer science at UC Berkeley, who also heads the university’s Video and Image Processing Lab.
