Event: Science Study Break features Dr. Wilson Geisler on forensic imaging. The event is free and open to the public.
When: 6 p.m., Tuesday, November 5, 2013
Where: Student Activity Center Auditorium (SAC 1.402) at The University of Texas at Austin.
Background: Department of Psychology professor and Director of the Center for Perceptual Systems (CPS) Dr. Wilson Geisler uses his work in the field of image processing to critique the authenticity of forensic imaging as portrayed in television shows like The Good Wife, Castle, Luther and almost every other modern detective drama that has aired.
Geisler’s research into animal and human visual systems at the CPS resulted in the development of a website where users can “de-noise” images for free, allowing their enlargement without a loss of picture quality.
Free pizza (while it lasts) for program attendees.
Pop culture and the academy collide as Science Study Break features relevant faculty and experts from the University of Texas at Austin discussing the reality and fantasy portrayed as fact in science-themed television and movies. Science Study Break is hosted by the University of Texas Libraries and supported by the University Federal Credit Union.
