On SQL Saturday Croatia showing tips & tricks on creating a photorealistic avatar.

SQLSaturday is a free training event for professionals who use the Microsoft data platform. These community events offer content across data management, cloud and hybrid architecture, analytics, business intelligence, AI, and more. This event was held virtually on Sep 19 2020.

Our CTO & Microsoft MVP Sebastiano Galazzo shows the technique he developed, that enables animation production starting from a written text. Then, landmark extraction is run in order to identify the visual salient landmarks. He also uses Speech-to-Text transcription, Text-to-Speech conversion and audio processing methods like Short-Time Fourier Transform (STFT). After identifying the landmarks, autoencoder features are used to animate the avatar. Image Super Resolution architecture upscales and improves the animation resolution.
