I am investigating the use of AI in rapid character and asset creation for highly stylised avatars or high quality rapid character creation with semantically meaningful controls assisting design. The focus is on leveraging the rich quadrupedal motion capture data of CAMERA here at Bath via deep learning techniques. My project will also consider the ethical issues concerned with high quality avatar generation, and the potential impacts on the creative industries (eg games industry ‘crunch‘).
Machine Learning, particularly concerned with Animation and Procedural Character Generation for the creative industries, with broader interests in Reinforcement Learning, Graphics, and Vision.
