Forman Lecture: Real vs. Fake Videos: The Physics of Video Analysis

Thursday, September 11, 2014,

  • Location: 4327 Stevenson Center TN

Physics and Astronomy Colloquium, 2014-2015 presents Rhett Allain, Department of Chemistry & Physics, Southeastern Louisiana University

Presentation: "Real vs. Fake Videos: The Physics of Video Analysis"  

We have all seen videos on television or online, and wonder "Is that real?" Most fake videos have either unrealistic physics or show an event with a very small probability of success. In this talk, I will share some of my favorite online videos along with the tools and physics used to analyze them.

Colloquia are held on Thursdays at 3 p.m. in room 4327 (building 4) of the Stevenson Science Center unless otherwise noted. Click here for directions, or phone the department. A reception with the speaker is held at 2:30 p.m. in Stevenson 6333.

Host: R. Scherrer
