Talk Title: Automating 3D Contents Creation for AR/VR
Abstract: The last couple of years have shown an incredible boost in performance, quality of real-time applications of AR/VR. The creation of high quality 3D assets, including virtual human, objects and 3D environments is tied with complex capture equipment, massive data, a long production cycle and intensive manual labor by a professional team. And it may still be in the notorious Uncanny Valley. In this talk, I will explore how to produce high quality 3D assets in a low-cost way. I will discuss how to leverage AI-based technologies to automate, accelerate, and simplify the industrial production procedure of 3D contents creation from data capturing to rendering. And bring photorealism to the next level!
