We have been conducting the e-Heritage project, which converts assets that form our cultural heritage into digital forms, by using computer vision and computer graphics technologies. We hope to utilize such forms 1) for preservation in digital form of our irreplaceable treasures for future generations, 2) for planning and physical restoration, using digital forms as basic models from which we can manipulate data, 3) for cyber archaeology, i.e., investigation of digitized data through computer analysis, and 4) for education and promotion through multimedia contents based on the digital data. This talk briefly overviews our e-Heritage projects underway in Italy, Cambodia, and Japan. We will explain what hardware and software issues have arisen, how to overcome them by designing new sensors using recent computer vision technologies, as well as how to process these data using computer graphics technologies. We will also explain how to use such data for archeological analysis, and review new findings. Finally, we will discuss a new way to display such digital data by using the mixed reality systems, i.e. head-mount displays on site, connected from cloud computers.
Dr. Katsushi Ikeuchi is a Professor at the University of Tokyo. He received a Ph.D. degree in Information Engineering from the University of Tokyo in 1978. After working at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s AI Lab for two years, Electrotechnical Lab, Japan for five years, and Carnegie Mellon University for ten years, he joined the university in 1996. His research interest spans computer vision, robotics, and computer graphics. He has received several awards, including the IEEE Marr Award, the IEEE RAS “most active distinguished lecturer” award and the IEEE-CS ICCV Significant Researcher Award as well as Shiju Houshou (the Medal of Honor with Purple ribbon) from the Emperor of Japan. He is a fellow of IEEE, IEICE, IPSJ, and RSJ.
