Come hear George cover two content aware applications of computational photography.

The first being content aware seam carving - a process to dynamically retarget the width and length of an image while preserving its content.

The second will be content aware automatic photo enhancement where he will focus on algorithms that detect a face, detect skin then apply tone mapping operators to correct underexposed pixel values.

The results are not always preferable but it is an interesting dive into some computational photography applications.

All code will be available.
