Markus Gross ETH and Disney Research

The Technology to Create the Magic

Disney Research was launched in 2008 as a network of research laboratories that collaborate closely with
academic institutions such as the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich and Carnegie Mellon University.
Its mission is to push the frontiers of technology in areas relevant to Disney's creative entertainment businesses.
Disney Research develops innovations for Parks, Film, Animation, Television, Games, and Consumer Products.
Research areas include video and  animation technologies, postproduction and special effects, digital fabrication,
robotics, and much more. This talk gives an overview of Disney Research spiced with some examples of our
latest and greatest inventions. The focus is on the collaboration between ETH Zurich and the Walt Disney
Company displaying the synergies arising from this program. This talk will highlight a company perspective as
well as a view from the academic angle.

Short Bio:

 

Markus Gross is a Professor of Computer Science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zürich (ETH),
head of the Computer Graphics Laboratory, and the Director of Disney Research, Zürich. He joined the ETH
Computer Science faculty in 1994. His research interests include physically based modeling, computer animation,
immersive displays, and video technology. Before joining Disney, Gross was director of the Institute of
Computational Sciences at ETH. He received a master of science in electrical and computer engineering and
a PhD in computer graphics and image analysis, both from Saarland University in Germany in 1986 and 1989.
Gross serves on the boards of numerous international research institutes, societies, and governmental
organizations. He received the Technical Achievement Award from EUROGRAPHICS in 2010, the Swiss ICT
Champions Award in 2011 and the IEEE Visualization Technical Achievement Award in 2015. He is a fellow of
the ACM and of the EUROGRAPHICS Association and a member of the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina
as well as the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities. In 2013 he received a Technical
Achievement Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Konrad Zuse Medal of GI and
the Karl Heinz Beckurts price. He cofounded Cyfex AG, Novodex AG, LiberoVision AG, Dybuster AG and
Gimalon AG.

Rendering research, its applications, and the real world

Computer graphics is a unique and fascinating field—it draws people with many goals but with a shared passion
for building models and simulations that exhibit the complexity, simplicity, and beauty of our real world. Our
emphases on generality, efficiency, and correct qualitative behavior set us apart from many related fields, and
make for a particular kind of value we bring to varied applications. I will explore the push and pull between
research in rendering and its applications—both to creating virtual worlds and to making real things—and the
value of good models of the real world.  Along the way I will discuss some of my own research in modeling
materials for graphics, and spend some time looking for—though perhaps not finding—the secrets of selecting
successful research directions. The talk is aimed primarily at students starting careers in graphics, but I hope
everyone can find something of interest to take away.
