Virtual Undergraduate Town Hall: Accelerated Cloth Simulation for Virtual Try-On
July 14, 2016
Cloth Simulation, Tanya Amert, Town Hall, Undergrad, Virtual Undergraduate Town Hall, Webinar
During the Virtual Undergraduate Town Hall Event, you will join students from around the world in a virtual mentoring event where you will learn about cutting edge research in the field of computing. You will have the opportunity to ask distinguished computer scientists any questions you might have.
Research Presentation: Accelerated Cloth Simulation for Virtual Try-On
The state of the art in cloth simulation can produce highly realistic cloth, but requires extremely high computation time, on the order of hours or even days. Applications such as animation previewing or virtual prototyping call for more interactive simulations and might be able to sacrifice a small amount of accuracy to achieve these speeds. In this talk, I will give an overview of common techniques used in cloth simulation, and discuss some of the research challenges we face in accelerating the overall runtime.
Mentoring Session: Grad School Applications 101
Applying to graduate schools can be a daunting activity. Which schools should you consider applying to? What do you write in a statement of interest? When do you need to start? The mentoring session that is part of this webinar will provide answers to all of these questions and more.
Register today, for the webinar!
Speaker: Tanya Amert, Ph.D. Student at UNC, Chapel Hill, Computer Science
Bio: Tanya is currently a second-year Ph.D. student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in the department of Computer Science. She received her Bachelor of Science and Master of Engineering degrees from MIT, and then spent three years at Microsoft, working as a Software Engineer in Office 365. Her research focuses on physically-based simulations for VR applications such as virtual try-on.
Host: Lori Pollock, Professor at University of Delaware, Computer and Information Sciences
