Horizon is a research group in the Department of Computer Science at University of Rochester. We work on architecture + V, where V is any visual computing domain that is technically deep and has broad societal impact (e.g., Augmented/Virtual Reality, autonomous machines, and digital humanities); architecture refers to the interplay between different forms of information-processing "computing architecture", such as optics, image sensors, Systems-on-a-Chip, and the human visual system.
