While academic research works have been the main driving force behind numerous innovative technologies for many years, it is also widely known that there exists a gap between research prototypes and industrial requirements. In this talk, I will share three concrete examples where I personally encountered the "gap" between research and application in computational fabrication, geometry processing and computer vision, and how they lead to further research topics in mesh boolean, mesh decimation and user interface design.

Short bio:

Qingnan (James) Zhou is a member of the Applied Research Group in Adobe Research. He received his PhD in computer science from New York University in 2016 advised by Denis Zorin, and he received his master degree from University of British Columbia in 2009 advised by Alla Sheffer and his bachelor's degree from University of Waterloo in 2007. Qingnan's research interests include robust geometry processing, computational fabrication, physics based simulation and cloud computing. When not working, he enjoys bouldering, hiking, playing tennis and learning martial arts.
