Computational Perception with Applications to Graphic Design | Zoya Bylinskii, MIT

Date: 

Friday, October 19, 2018, 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Location: 

Harvard University, Maxwell Dworkin G115, 33 Oxford Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

Abstract: What makes an image memorable? Which parts of a display or interface capture attention? How can a visualization be designed to be impactful and educational? At the core of computational perception, Zoya's work focuses on understanding human memory and attention, using computational approaches (e.g., information theoretic models, deep learning, etc.) for modeling, and, coming full circle, using the findings about human perception to improve user interfaces. During her talk, Zoya, will demonstrate applications of this work to interactive design tools and automatic graphic design summarization, and talk about the future of A.I. for creativity.

Refreshments will be served from 1-1:30pm on a first-come, first-served basis.

Speaker Bio:  Zoya Bylinskii is a Research Scientist at Adobe Research and a MIT Postdoctoral Affiliate.
