Katayanagi Prize in Computer Science Lecture
Sep 26, 2013
Pat Hanrahan, the Canon USA Professor of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, will receive the Katayanagi Prize for Research Excellence and present a public lecture, titled "People, Data and Analysis." At Pixar Animation Studios in the early '80s, Hanrahan was the chief architect of RenderMan, a system still widely used in the movie industry to create imagery of virtual scenes and characters, for which he shared a 1992 Academy Award for Science and Technology. He won a second Academy Award in 2003 for developing illumination algorithms for simulating realistic lighting, and improved physical models of materials such as skin and hair.
