Title: Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing: more than just colorful images
 
Abstract:
Visual computing combines successful fields such as computer graphics, visualization, image analysis and computer vision. Evaluation in some of these fields is still done qualitatively (good is what looks good). Since visual data and visualizations are used for many important decisions, instead quantitative evaluation is needed. In our recently started research initiative we plan to develop quantitative methods  for many aspects of visual computing. I will present examples and give a roadmap towards a quantitative culture for visual computing.
