TU Wien won grant to advance design tools for building planning through multi- and interdisciplinary basic research.

In the field of computer technology, many things are changing: virtual reality makes three-dimensional computer worlds tangible, robots are getting into everyday working life, modern algorithms are calculating realistic surfaces, and light and shadow effects in real time. However, many of these research findings have not yet taken hold in architecture and the construction process. That should change now. Read more about New Special Research Area Funded by FWF

Beim PC und künftigen Playstation- und Xbox-Modellen soll die Technologie für spielerische Augenweide sorgen.  Raytracing gilt als heiliger Gral der Echtzeitgrafik und soll mit der nächsten Konsolengeneration breitenwirksame Einkehr finden. Die Technologie bietet realistische Beleuchtung, einen physikalisch korrekten Schattenwurf von Objekten und pixelgenaue Reflexionen. Nvidia hat mit der Turing-Architektur vorgelegt. Bei ihren Grafikkarten ist Hardware dabei, die die vormals extrem aufwendigen Rechenleistungen sehr schnell erledigt. Read more about Games - Raytracing: Was steckt hinter der Grafikrevolution?

Realism has been a major driving force since the inception of the field of computer graphics, and algorithms that generate photorealistic images using physical simulations are now in widespread use. These algorithms are normally used in a "forward” sense: given an input scene, they produce an output image.
