Genetics of the human face: Identification of large-effect single gene variants. DJM Crouch, B Winney, WP Koppen, WJ Christmas, K Hutnik, T Day, D Meena, A Boumertit, P Hysi, A Nessa, TD Spector, J Kittler, WF Bodmer.

Date: January 2018. Source: People of the British Isles, Newsletter Issue 7. Abstract: We have been studying the genetics underlying human facial features since the renewal of our PoBI grant from the Wellcome Trust in 2009. We have been doing this by going back to as many of the original volunteers as we could to…

Embodied Hands: Modeling and Capturing Hands and Bodies Together. J Romero, D Tzionas, MJ Black.

Date: November 2017. Source: ACM Transactions on Graphics (TOG) – Proceedings of ACM SIGGRAPH Asia 2017. Abstract: Humans move their hands and bodies together to communicate and solve tasks. Capturing and replicating such coordinated activity is critical for virtual characters that behave realistically. Surprisingly, most methods treat the 3D modeling and tracking of bodies and…

Date: October 2017 Source: PNAS | Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1708207114. Significance: The human face is extraordinarily variable, and the extreme similarity of the faces of identical twins indicates that most of this variability is genetically determined. We have devised an approach to increase the…

4D Movies Capture People in Clothing, Creating Realistic Virtual Try-on. M Black, G Pons-Moll, S Pujades.

Date: August 2017 Source: SIGGRAPH 2017, Los Angeles, CA, USA Overview: Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) have developed technology to digitally capture clothing on moving people, turn it into a 3D digital form, and dress virtual avatars with it. This new technology makes virtual clothing try-on practical. ClothCap uses 4D…
