 Title of thesis



SUMMARY OF THESIS MOST RECENTLY COMPLETED OR IN PROGRESS
 Use plain language. Do not reproduce abstract of thesis.

 Spherical panoramas have been used in such high-profile applications as Google's Street View to allow users
 to naturally explore real-world images from the comfort of their own homes. In the case of Google, crude
 street information is augmented onto panoramic images to aid navigation both while viewing the panorama
 and, in theory, while driving or walking on location. It may be useful to augment a photograph (taken with a
 cell phone for example) of an intersection or tourist attraction while a person is actually standing there, but an
 exact camera location would be required to do this.

 One way to obtain this camera location is to compare the photograph with nearby spherical panoramas (which
 can be found using a rough GPS location estimate). If the panoramas have been captured and saved with
 positional information, then the scene geometry between the user's camera and the panoramas will help
 recover information about that camera's position, thereby allowing for an accurate augmentation.

 Previous work [1] has established a method to recover position information between two panoramas, and the
 theory established there may be applicable to this case of comparing a photograph with a panorama. This will
 be verified during the course of the research, but the thesis will mainly investigate the best way to efficiently
 obtain a large number of match correspondences between the photograph and the panorama, as this is the first
 step to finding the mathematical structures that describe the geometry.

 The format of the panoramas in [1] is that of a cube. Because of the 'seams' along adjacent faces, some feature
 points may not find correspondences to the same features visible in the planar photograph. As such, this
 format will be compared with a cylindrical representation of the panoramas, which has no seams but must deal
 with curvature issues, to see if more correspondences might be found.

 In addition, it must be determined what information should be stored on a central server along with the set of
 pre-captured panoramas. As much work as possible should be pre-computed to ensure the user's photograph
 is sent back with an augmentation as soon as possible.

 While road information such as that augmented onto images in Street View may not need to be highly
 accurate, there are many other applications that would require more precision. For example, virtual objects or
 textual information could be added to the photograph before it is sent back to a tourist learning about a
 historically significant area. In a case like this, a natural augmentation obtained with an accurate camera
 location is all but essential.

Outline of Proposed Research

This outline proposes work that would be part of the NAVIRE (NAVigation in Image-based
Representations of real-world Environments) research project at the University of Ottawa. This project
is related to the work described for my Master’s thesis, but is not a direct continuation of it. The
NAVIRE system allows a user to walk, fly, or drive through a remote environment along pre-determined
paths. The end goal is to have a true tele-presence system that provides a convincingly immersive
experience of being inside an environment located elsewhere. Driving the quality of this system forward
would be particularly beneficial to Canada, which has a strong broadband network to transmit large
images, as well as large distances between culturally relevant parks, museums, and other landmarks that
many citizens would like to experience.

The environments in NAVIRE are, as the full form of the acronym implies, image-based. In fact,
spherical panoramas are used to capture 360 degrees of image data at predefined intervals. This data is
later transformed into cube-shaped panoramas that users can explore by employing various rotations.
The user can also move from one “cube” to another along the path the images were captured on.

Because the environments used in NAVIRE are image-based, it is possible to augment them with
artificial data. For example, geographical information could be provided, similar to what is found in
Google’s Street View. Alternatively, large 3D models could be added to a scene to show what historic
buildings looked like or how a construction site might appear once completed. It may even be possible
to add animations or live video feeds. No matter what is added, the accurate computation of scene
geometry is essential in obtaining a natural, high quality augmentation. This can be computed with
multiple panoramas that both contain a sufficient number of common features.

The main goal of this research is to find the method that best determine the scene geometry with the high
level of accuracy that is required. Current standard approaches do allow for small objects to be inserted
into a scene, but do not generally work well for large models. These methods need to be surveyed, and
new ideas tested. For instance, local, dense, multi-view reconstruction techniques may work well.
Furthermore, the use of spherical panoramas may have advantages over simple planar images.

This research in computer vision and graphics will require the development of mathematical foundations
and the use of a built system for experimentation. The results of the NAVIRE project up until now
includes a feature-rich system already built. This system allows for the acquisition, processing, and
display of panoramic images. Therefore, the underlying system development will not be required for this
research. On the other hand, tools to facilitate the actual augmentation process will need to be
developed. These will need to be as automated and intuitive as possible. It may be possible to
collaborate with a Master’s student for the creation of the authoring tools, leaving the actual
augmentation as the sole subject of this research.

To experimentally compare augmentation methods, and to verify the new methods, a popular tourist
destination in the area (for example, the National War Museum) will be captured and processed as an
image-based environment. Various augmentations will be used for this experimentation, including
simple text and images, basic and complex models, and potentially video. Scene geometry can be
verified using mathematical error analysis. How natural the augmentation is would be a largely
qualitative measure.

Part I: Contributions to research and development

c. Other refereed contributions

Carmichael, G. (2008) Girls, Computer Science, and Games. ACM SIGCSE Bulletin. Accepted
September 26 2008 for the December issue. 5 pages.

Part II: Most significant contributions to research and development

The research for Girls, Computer Science, and Games was conducted solely by me. The topic of
discussion was the design, preparation, and delivery of a week-long mini-course for grade eight and nine
girls, all of which I did myself.

The course, part of the Enrichment Mini-Course Program administered at Carleton University and
University of Ottawa, was intended to act as an outreach to young women who often do not have the
opportunity or desire to learn about computer science. The strategy employed in this research proved to
be effective. As only freely available materials and software were used, much can be reused by the
general outreach community.

This research was submitted to ACM’s Special Interest Group on Computer Science Education as it best
fit the subject matter of that publication, and there was an opportunity to reach a large audience.

Part III: Applicant’s statement

a. Research Experience

While working as a co-op student at Ross Video, I worked extensively on their (patent pending) chroma
keyer (i.e. blue screen) technology. The main areas of research included working with the original
developer to improve the overall quality, and independently designing a more accessible user control
system. In both cases, I wrote documents for internal use to capture the important information that
future developers tasked to maintain the software would need to know, as well as a user-centric
explanation of how to use the technology. I also had the opportunity to work with real customers to do
some basic user and task analysis.

My other co-op placement at Corel Corporation led to an interesting work-term report during my last
term there. I had just taken a course on user interface design, and wanted to use the theory learned there
to analyse the software I worked on from that perspective. My supervisor gave a positive evaluation,
commenting that the user researchers at the company would likely benefit from reading my analysis and
taking into account some of my suggestions.

For my undergraduate honours project, I again worked with Ross Video to research the feasibility of
using standard personal computers for real-time video processing rather than a hybrid solution with
FPGA’s (field-programmable gate arrays). Here, I developed my ability to design and perform
meaningful experiments.

b. Relevant Activities

I have had several opportunities to develop my leadership abilities in the past several years. For
instance, I managed several school ambassadors in Eastern Ontario and Quebec leading up to the 2007
Canadian Undergraduate Technology Conference. I successfully completed the Mindtrust Leadership
Development Program offered at Carleton and University of Ottawa in 2007. I served as the President
of the Carleton Computer Science Society during my last year as an undergraduate, 2006-2007, and
managed to rebuild the society, offering many social and academic events as well as renewing
relationships with faculty and staff. I am the Google Ambassador for Carleton (and have been since
2006). I am currently an executive member for the Carleton student branch of Women in Science and
Engineering (CU-WISE), which has also been rebuilt with my help over the last year or so. I am a
registered volunteer for this year’s Let’s Talk Science outreach program and am involved in helping
several other outreach initiatives through CU-WISE. I will be attending the Grace Hopper Celebration
of Women in Computing as a “Hopper” volunteer and a volunteer blogger.

My strong writing skills have been demonstrated in several capacities. I regularly keep my own blog
called The Female Perspective of Computer Science, and contribute to the Nerd Girls outreach project’s
blog. I was recently invited to be a contributing author for a book tentatively called Hard and Soft
Technologies: Stories of Women in Technology and will submit an article this December. I wrote a
survival guide for undergraduate computer science students with advice on topics ranging from making
the most of classroom time to how to conduct research. I have written several successful proposals for
institution-level funding, including funding to attend several conferences and other events.

I have good experience with public speaking, including many successful in-class presentations. I have
(co-)presented the field of computer science to middle and high school students. I gave a yearly talk on
topics in obtaining and succeeding in technical jobs which is now continued by current undergraduate
students. I am part of many presentations given by CU-WISE and was included several times in a
promotional video made by the School of Computer Science.

As mentioned in Part I, I developed and taught a week-long mini-course for young women. The course
used games as a motivation to learn computer science. During lectures, I taught several concepts of
computer science that related to games, including artificial intelligence, graphics, and user interface
design. In the lab, the students worked on creating their own video game using freely available drag-
and-drop-style software. I received very positive feedback from my students.

I am currently working toward a Certificate in Teaching Skills offered by the Education and
Development Centre at Carleton. I have also been a teaching assistant for several different professors.
For two semesters, I worked with a class called Programming Paradigms, in which students are taught
Scheme and Prolog. As it is the first time they are exposed to functional and logical programming, this
course is a great challenge for many of them. While grading, students appreciated my detailed and fair
comments, and during office hours, students who sought help were generally satisfied. I received several
positive comments from students and my supervisors. I am currently working with two other TA’s for a
first year class called Introduction to Game Design; we run lab tutorials using the same software I used
during my week-long mini-course and lead design discussions.
