SIGGRAPH 2020: Pixels, Games, Humans, AI: Display Research at NVIDIA

David Luebke, NVIDIA
NVIDIA Research works at the intersection of computation and display, on applications ranging from augmented reality to competitive gaming. I will give a tour of our research, focusing on two main topics: novel display optics for virtual & augmented reality, and conventional desktop displays for extreme users: the esports athletes for whom a single millisecond advantage can turn defeat into victory. I will also discuss how advances in artificial intelligence are changing how we think about topics like resolution and frame rate, and highlight what I consider the most impactful research questions around displays, holographic optics, graphics, and human perception.
