The Global AI Bootcamp Torino 2021 (Italy) is an event managed by Deltatre Innovation Lab, a creativity hub where many of the ideas that shape the way the world watches sports, film and TV are born, tested and created. This event took place on January, the 15th, where our CTO and Microsoft MVP Sebastiano Galazzo showed his research, highlighting the technique he used on creating a photorealistic avatar.
Starting from the speaker experience, Sebastiano showcased photorealistic results manipulating several convolution flows. He showed the technique he developed, that enables animation production starting from a written text. After identifying the landmarks, autoencoder features are used to animate the avatar. Image Super Resolution architecture upscales and improves the animation resolution.
