We review the recent advances in computational imaging and the benefits of incorporating deep learning techniques to imaging tasks. In this tutorial, attendees will first get an overview of computational imaging, followed by several in depth examples demonstrating how data-driven techniques are used in different computational imaging tasks. Finally, we'll have hands on examples of different rendering techniques, an essential tool for robust data-driven computational imaging solutions.
