Research

AI Affective Virtual Human

Our affective real-time 3D AI virtual human project with face emotion recognition, movement recognition and full AI talking, gesture and reasoning.


Deep Learning AI Creativity For Visuals / Words

Using Cognitive Science as a basis for our work, we attempt to model aspects of human creativity in AI. Specially we are using Neural Networks (and evolutionary systems) in the form of Deep Learning, CNNs, RNNs and other modern techniques to model aspects of human expression and creativity.


Cognitive (AI) Based Abstraction

What is abstraction? Can you use AI techniques to model the semantics of an idea, object, or entity, where that understanding allows for abstraction of the meaning? We use several AI techniques including genetic programming, Neural Nets and Deep Learning to explore abstraction in its many forms. Mainly here in the visual and narrative arts.


Evolving Creative Computer Programs w/Genetic Programming

This research uses creative evolutionary systems to explore computer creativity for various applications (in our first pass – evolving a family of abstract portrait painter programs). We use relatively new form of Genetic Programming (GP) called Cartesian Genetic Programming (CGP) first developed by Julian Miller .

MusicFace

Can you extract the emotional aspects of a piece of music to animate a face. Music-driven Emotionally Expressive Face (MusicFace) is a early stage project that creates “facial choreography” driven by musical input. In addition to its artistic uses, MusicFace can be used for creating visual effects in movies and animations, and also realistic characters in computer games and virtual worlds.


GenFace - Exploring FaceSpace with Genetic Algorithms

Imagine an -dimensional space describing every conceivable humanoid face, where each dimension represents a different facial characteristic. Within this continuous space, it would be possible to traverse a path from any face to any other face, morphing through locally similar faces along that path. We will describe and demonstrate a development system we have created to explore what it means to ‘surf’through face space. We will present our investigation of the relationships between facial types and how this understanding can be used to create new communication and expression systems.
