Overview

How can AI and machine learning help computers take 2D videos of our movements and translate them into an animated 3D character? 

Dancer using motion capture technology

Using ground-breaking machine learning technology, Professor Adrian Hilton and his team at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, University of Surrey, are able to teach computers to see the things we see – from detecting human motion for animation in film production and gaming, to learning how to distinguish cancerous cells from healthy ones in medical imaging.

Come and try our live AI-driven motion capture technology and teach a robot how to dance.
