Camera Culture Research Group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MIT, USA aims in creating new class of imaging platform that exceeds human ability. This group also aims to create meaningful abstractions within the range of human comprehensibility. It was co-founded by Ramesh Raskar who has become the subject of discussion now.

Ramesh Raskar shared his thoughts and said his invention Femto photography was special. Ramesh also spoke about how one would be able to move through fog and read a book without the need of opening. He spoke about the principles that are associated with the scattering of light. Ramesh Raskar threw light on how his robotics and imaging background was responsible for his new invention.
