October 2017

Seven links for today:

  • Prof. Min Chen has assembled a page of all the STAR (State of the Art), review, and survey papers in Computer Graphics Forum. Such articles are great for getting up to speed on a topic.
  • Jendrik Illner has been writing a weekly roundup of recent blog posts and other online resources for computer graphics. Some good stuff in there, articles I missed, and I’m happy to see someone filtering through and summing up what’s out there. I hope he doesn’t burn out anytime soon.
  • ACM TOG is now encouraging submitting code with articles, so as to be able to reproduce results and build off previous work. I’m happy to see it.
  • There is now a Monument to an Anonymous Peer Reviewer at Moscow’s Higher School of Economics (more pics here, and Kickstarter page). I liked, “Researchers from across the world will visit to touch the “Accept” side in the hope that the gods of peer review will smile down upon them.”
  • Some ARKit apps in development look like wonderful magic. Which is often how demos look, vs. reality, but let me have my dreams for now.
  • One more AI post: the jobs of people who name colors are not yet at risk. Though I do like the computer’s new color name “Snowbonk” and some of the others. Certainly “Stanky Bean” is descriptive, no worse than puce.
  • I should have reposted months ago, but many others already have. Just in case you missed it, Stephen Hill’s SIGGRAPH 2017 link collection is wonderfully useful, as usual.

Machine learning, and especially deep learning, is all the rage, so here are some (vaguely) graphics-related tie ins:
