Even though SIGGRAPH 2017 is over, it’s still on our minds. As the world’s largest annual conference on computer graphics (hosted in sunny Los Angeles, no less), there were a slew of exciting and noteworthy players. Among the bracket of exhibitors at the event was Perception Neuron. As a leader in adaptable motion capture systems, they showcased the latest software from FaceRig – one of the best animation software out there today.
As algorithms have advanced, technology has gotten smarter. Case in point, last month in China, Google’s AlphaGo –AI specifically developed to tackle the ancient strategy game – defeated Go world champion, Ke Jie. In the three game series, AlphaGo beat the Chinese grandmaster by a slim margin. This isn’t the first time the revolutionary machine has proven its superiority in the game. In March in Seoul, South Korea, AlphaGo made history as the first machine to beat one of the world’s top players, Korean grandmaster Lee Sedol.
