Astonishing – Digital Humans That Look Just Like Us

In an astonishing talk and tech demo, software researcher Doug Roble debuts “DigiDoug”: a real-time, 3-D, digital rendering of his likeness that’s accurate down to the scale of pores and wrinkles. Powered by an inertial motion capture suit, deep neural networks and enormous amounts of data, DigiDoug renders the real Doug’s emotions (and even how his blood flows and eyelashes move) in striking detail. Learn more about how this exciting tech was built — and its applications in movies, virtual assistants and beyond.

TED: Ideas Worth Spreading
TED: Ideas Worth Spreadinghttps://www.ted.com/
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
