Speaker Ingrid Carlbom
Title The History of Computer Graphics (2 hours!)
Abstract It all began with Ivan Sutherland’s Sketchpad in 1963 and this year the computer graphics industry is estimated to exceed $60 Billion worldwide, according to one market analyst. In this talk I will trace over 50 years of development in computer graphics, with examples from CAD/CAM, flight simulation, medical visualization, archeology, animation, and of course special effects in movies. I will put an emphasis on what has been accomplished, with highlights of key milestones and my favorite animations. My goal is to inspire you to want to learn about how it is done.
