Abe Davis    

Postdoctoral Researcher at Stanford University; Former Computer Science PhD Student at MIT

Computer vision expert Abe Davis pioneers methods to extract audio from silent digital videos, even footage shot on ordinary consumer cameras.

Currently working on his postdoctoral research at Stanford, MIT PhD student, computer vision wizard and rap artist Abe Davis has co-created the world’s most improbable audio instrument. In 2014, Davis and his collaborators debuted the “visual microphone,” an algorithm that samples the sympathetic vibrations of ordinary objects (such as a potato chip bag) from ordinary high-speed video footage and transduces them into intelligible audio tracks.

Davis is also the author of "Caperture," a 3D-imaging app designed to create and share 3D images on any compatible smartphone.
