Abstract: “A level set model is a deformable implicit model that has a regularly-sampled representation. It is defined as an iso-contour, i.e. a level set, of some implicit function f. The contour is deformed by solving a partial differential equation on a sampling of f, an image in 2D and a volume dataset in 3D. Level set methods provide the techniques needed to change pixel/voxel values in a way that evolves the embedded iso-contour to meet a user-defined goal. Deforming models within a level set framework provides several advantages. By construction, self-intersection cannot occur, which guarantees the generation of physically realizable (i.e. manufacturable), simple, closed objects. Additionally, level set models easily change topological genus, and are free of the edge-face connectivity issues associated with mesh models. In this talk I will introduce level set models and describe four computer graphics applications that utilize them. The applications are 3D morphing, contour-based surface reconstruction, volume segmentation and geometric modeling.”

How robots and bubbles could soon help clean up underwater litter

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun. But these simple life affirming pleasures are easily ruined by the presence of litter, which if persistent can have a serious negative impact on both the local environment and economy. However, help is at hand to ensure the pristine nature of our coastlines.
