Amazing to see stereo panoramas (aka ‘VR photos’) coming to mobile phones with Cardboard Camera. Can't wait for the iPhone version!

An interesting graph taken from [1], Google's research on what different strategies experts and non-experts take to stay secure online. Biggest difference: experts use unique passwords and password managers, non-experts rely on anti-virus software.

Exciting stuff!
Here's our new paper on creating time-lapse videos from Internet photos that will appear in SIGGRAPH 2015!

Project website: 
http://grail.cs.washington.edu/projects/timelapse/

Abstract:
We introduce an approach for synthesizing time-lapse videos of popular landmarks from large community photo collections. The approach is completely automated and leverages the vast quantity of photos available online. First, we cluster 86 million photos into landmarks and popular viewpoints. Then, we sort the photos by date and warp each photo onto a common viewpoint. Finally, we stabilize the appearance of the sequence to compensate for lighting effects and minimize flicker. Our resulting time-lapses show diverse changes in the world's most popular sites, like glaciers shrinking, skyscrapers being constructed, and waterfalls changing course.

It's interesting to see the effect of a partial solar eclipse that darkens the sun by about 3 quarters at its peak. Taken in Saarbrücken on 20 Mar 2015.
