The discussion on AI and cooperation that took place during the Science and video games conference in which Vicky Kalogeiton participated (with Antoine bauza and Pierre Beri) is highlighted by Polytechnique. The video of the discussion is available online.
We will be co-organizing the Digital Geometry & Discrete Variational Calculus from March the 29th to April 2nd.
We will be involved in the Colloque Science & Jeux Vidéos that will take place from March 29th to April 1st.
We organised the French working days on Geometry Modeling (GTMG) that took place on the 18th and 19th of March. Thanks to all the participants !
Our work on Affective Language for Visual Art (ArtEmis) using AI to make emotional sense of abstract artwork, developed in collaboration with researchers from Stanford and KAUST, is highlighted in media. [Medium.com], [Polytechnique].
We are happy to welcome Mathieu Desbrun, currently on leave from Caltech, and joining the lab as an Inria senior researcher. We are eager to work with him in the near future, as well as working toward a reshaping of our team.
Congratulation to Thomas Buffet who succesfully defended his PhD (2021/01/13) on the Topic: “Field-based approaches for the collision-free animation of layered and dynamic clothing”.
