Face2Face: “Best in Show” Award auf der Siggraph 2016

Das Exponat “Demo of Face2Face” erhielt bei der Ausstellung “Emerging Technologies” auf der Siggraph 2016 den “Best in Show” Award. Das Exponat entstand aus einer Zusammenarbeit der FAU, des Max-Planck-Instituts für Informatik in Saarbrücken und der Stanford University unter Federführung von Justus Thies vom Lehrstuhl Graphische Datenverarbeitung (zweiter von links).

Das Preiskomitee schreibt dazu:
On 27 July, the Emerging Technologies program “Best in Show” Award winner was announced. The award went to “Demo of Face2Face: Real-Time Face Capture and Reenactment of RGB Videos,” which presented a novel approach for producing real-time facial reenactments of a target-video sequence. The Emerging Technologies “Best in Show” Award honors the latest interactive, innovative, and graphics technologies in the 3D, virtual reality, and projection mapping industries, including practical applications. The award represents a true cross-section of science, technology, and art.

The Chair for Computer Science 9 (Computer Graphics) works on the generation and manipulation of synthetic images, virtual worlds and computer animations with the help of computers.

This comprises methods for generating suitable models of the scene (geometric modeling), methods for displaying such scenes (image synthesis, rendering) as well as the processing of large data sets with aim to visualize the information content (scientific visualization). Our focus is on applications of computer graphics in medicine and engineering.

The Department was founded 1992 and currently employs 21 scientific assistants.
