  1. Alvy Ray Smith | A Biography of the Pixel | Talks at Google

    Alvy Ray Smith discusses his career as a computer scientist and cofounder of Pixar Animation Studios, and his recent book "A Biography of the Pixel".

    Smith’s story of the pixel’s development begins with Fourier waves, proceeds through Turing machines, and ends with the first digital movies from Pixar, DreamWorks, and Blue Sky. In his book, he argues that the pixel is the organizing principle of most modern media, and he presents a few simple but profound ideas that unify the dazzling varieties of digital image making. A Biography of the Pixel approaches this subject from multiple angles—art, technology, entertainment, business, and history, and is essential reading for anyone who has watched a video on a cell phone, played a video game, or seen a movie.

    Alvy Ray Smith co-founded Pixar and Altamira Software. He was the first Director of Computer Graphics at Lucasfilm and the first Graphics Fellow at Microsoft. He has received two technical Academy Awards for his contribution to digital moviemaking technology.
