2014 Overview: USC Institute for Creative Technologies

264 views 2 weeks ago
At the University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) leaders in artificial intelligence, graphics, virtual reality and narrative advance low-cost immersive techniques and technologies to solve problems facing service members, students and society.

Established in 1999, ICT is a DoD-sponsored University Affiliated Research Center (UARC) working in collaboration with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. UARCs are aligned with prestigious institutions conducting research at the forefront of science and innovation.

ICT brings film and game industry artists together with computer and social scientists to study and develop immersive media for military training, health therapies, education and more. Learn more about USC ICT at http://ict.usc.edu Show less

Graphics Lab Play

The ICT Graphics Laboratory develops new techniques for creating and displaying photorealistic computer graphics of people, objects, and environments. We specialize in developing image-based methods for acquiring shape, reflectance, and motion from digital photography and video. The results are computer-generated virtual models which look and behave as realistically as possible, viewable from any viewpoint and in any illumination conditions.

SmartBody Play

SmartBody is a character animation platform originally developed at the University of Southern California Institute for Creative Technologies. SmartBody provides locomotion, steering, object manipulation, lip syncing, gazing and nonverbal behavior in real time.

SmartBody is written in C++ and can be incorporated into most game and simulation engines. SmartBody is a Behavioral Markup Language (BML) realization engine that transforms BML behavior descriptions into realtime animations. SmartBody runs on Windows, Linux, OSX as well as the iPhone and Android devices.

Games + Immersion Play

ICT's games and immersive allows individuals to interact with realistic and engaging characters. ICT's leadership in artificial intelligence, virtual worlds, computer animation and graphics is moving us from the realm of science fiction to reality.
