Professor Aljosa Smolic

SFI Res Prof of Creative Technologies (Computer Science)


Prof Smolic is the Professor of Creative Technologies at Trinity College Dublin. Before joining Trinity, Prof. Smolic was with Disney Research Zurich as Senior Research Scientist and Head of the Advanced Video Technology group, and with the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz- Institut (HHI), Berlin, also heading a research group as Scientific Project Manager. At Disney Research he led over 50 industrial R&D projects that have resulted in technology transfers to a range of Disney business units. They include film studios, TV broadcasters, consumer products and are used in professional production today. Prof Smolic is Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing and served as Guest Editor for the Proceedings of the IEEE, IEEE Transactions on CSVT, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, and other scientific journals. He is a Committee Member of several conferences, and served in several Chair positions of conferences. His research project here at TCD, V-SENSE, core research objective is to Extend the Dimensions of Visual Sensation through novel algorithms and workflows for Image-Based Visual Computing expanding the classical 2D video viewing experience common today, and to enable and support new consumer behaviours and preferences in consumption and creation of such content.
