Computational imaging leverages the co-design of hardware and software to re-define next-generation camera and display systems. In this talk, we discuss recent advances in computational single-photon imaging to enable non-line-of-sight vision and 3D imaging through highly scattering media. We also discuss how the emerging paradigm of end-to-end optimization of optics and imaging processing algorithms unlocks unprecedented capabilities in HDR and depth imaging as well as hybrid optical-electronic computing. Finally, similar end-to-end design strategies also allow us to define next-generation displays, such as holographic near-eye systems for virtual and augmented reality applications, which we will discuss in this talk.
