“Computer Science and Illusion”, will explore some connections between visual perception, computational theories of vision, and computer processing of images. It will touch on: perspective in drawings and how a computer can understand it; illusions of colour perception and the theory due to Edwin Land, the inventor of the Polaroid camera; stereoscopic vision, illusions and making computers see in depth . There will be various demonstrations of how the understanding of visual perspective, colour and texture has helped to produce more powerful tools for manipulating images by computer.
