David J. Brady, Michael J. Fitzpatrick Distinguished Professor of Photonics in the Edmund T. Pratt, Jr. School of Engineering

David J. Brady

David Brady leads the Duke Information Spaces Project (DISP). Historically, DISP has focused on computational imaging systems, with particular emphasis on smart cameras for security, consumer, transportation and broadcast applications. Currently DISP focuses primarily on the use of artificial intelligence in camera arrays for interactive broadcasting.
