Special Topics in Computer Graphics: Generating Natural Human Motion 15-869

Spring 2008 MW 10:30-12:00 in Porter A19A

Instructor: Jessica Hodgins


This course is an in-depth study of recently developed techniques for creating natural human motion for robotics and computer animation. We will explore both the mathematical techniques behind these systems and techniques for evaluating them. The topics to be covered include: control, motion graphs, statistical motion synthesis, motion blending, and optimization.
