The University of Southampton
Computationally Intensive Imaging

Exploiting technique, algorithmic and computational capabilities across the University 

The case for imaging in the 21st century being computationally-led is compelling: computation is a core element of virtually all major imaging developments. This USRG brings together a broad spectrum of world class imaging activities across the University of Southampton.

The ability to exploit data processing/mining, visualisation, inverse modelling, large-scale computation and best practice in data handling produces fundamental changes in the information available, making computation a core element of virtually all major imaging developments. Southampton is well placed in supporting this reality of contemporary imaging. Commonality is identifiable across the Southampton activities in terms of both their computationally intensive nature and interdisciplinarity.

There are 3 co-chairs of the Computationally Intensive Imaging USRG; Jeremy Frey, Bill Brocklesby and Thomas Blumensath.

The Computationally Imaging USRG (CII) mounted its yearly “Imaging as Art” show from 6-10th July 2015. Images from across the University were presented, with emphasis on their artistic rather than scientific nature.

The images were on show all week, with a drinks reception on Weds 8th July at 12 noon. where the owners of each of the images were on hand to explain the subject of the image, why the image was taken, and the significance of the image in relation to research.

The exhibition was a great success with over 200 people attending over the week.
