Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    Basic understanding of issues in computer graphics and electronic imaging. Familiarity with freshman-level college mathematics is helpful. No specific knowledge of perception psychology or statistical methods is necessary.

    Topics
    Experimental methods used to study human visual perception and performance; how to interpret the results of published experiments; how to design, run, and analyze psychophysical user studies to develop perceptually based graphics algorithms and applications.

    Description
    Psychometric methods from experimental psychology can be used to quantify relationships between the properties of images and what people perceive. This course provides an introduction to the use of psychometric methods in computer graphics and teaches attendees how to design perceptual experiments to advance graphics research and applications.
