Title: Learning to synthesize 3D face and human interactions

30 May 2024


This talk summarizes a number of aspects of 3D human face generation and body motion generation. I will first present our recent results on 3D and 4D face synthesis. We propose a new model that generates transitions between different expressions, and synthesizes long and composed 4D expressions. Second, I will present results on two-person interactions synthesis, a crucial element for designing 3D human motion synthesis frameworks. it can open up a wide variety of new applications in entertainment media, interactive mixed and augmented reality, human-AI interaction, and social robotics.
