Revealing invisible changes in the world

A CSAIL team — graduate students Michael Rubinstein and Neal Wadhwa, alumni Eugene Shih SM '01, PhD '10 and Hao-Yu Wu MNG '12, associate professor Frédo Durand, and professors William T. Freeman and John Guttag — earned honorable mention for this video at the 10th annual International Science & Technology Visualization Challenge, a highly competitive international contest. In the video, the researchers demonstrated an algorithm they developed that amplifies and allows for analysis of subtle movements and variations in color in ordinary videos.
