Café Scientifique by Professor Adrian Hilton and Dr Kristine Krug

As the graphics in computer games and films improve, what are the limitations when creating human figures? Why does our brain struggle to accept these representations as genuine human forms? Join Professor Adrian Hilton, a computer scientist and Dr Kristine Krug, a neuroscientist, to delve deeper into the challenges faced when generating computer models of humans.

Professor Adrian Hilton is Professor of Computer Vision at University of Surrey, and held a Royal Society Industry Fellowship at Framestore in 2011. Dr Kristine Krug is a Royal Society University Research Fellow based in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford.
