Speaker: 馬萬鈞博士 (Dr. Wan-Chun Alex Ma), Google 軟體工程師、2019奧斯卡科學技術成就獎得主
Topic: The Brave New Virtual World 勇闖 夢想虛擬世界
10年前，《班傑明的奇幻旅程》裡，布萊德彼特臉上的皺紋與逆齡成長的外貌，大家還記得嗎？又或是《阿凡達》裡，將演員幻化成為唯妙唯俏的納美族人? 甚至讓已車禍身亡的保羅沃克繼續演出《玩命關頭7》? 電影裡這些幾可亂真的影像與畫面，靠的就是數位演員和數位特效來完美呈現。而這幾部電影的幕後功臣之一便是我們6月5日的speaker，馬萬鈞博士。馬博士是繼李安之後，第二個拿到奧斯卡金像獎的台灣人。他與南加大團隊共同研發的「臉部捕捉特寫技術」影響了10年來好萊塢電影產業，也因此獲得奧斯卡科學技術成就獎的肯定。馬博士將由技術為出發，來跟我們分享這些新科技將如何從電影走進到我們的日常生活，以及將為我們帶來哪些商機與創業題材。歡迎您6月5日來跟我們一起「勇闖夢想虛擬世界」！
Virtual content has been around us for years. As computer graphics technologies improve, it is getting more difficult to distinguish what is real and what is virtual. In this presentation I would like to tackle this issue from two fronts: digital characters and augmented reality. As we are perceiving more and more photorealistic digital characters or assets shown around our daily life, what kind of new opportunities and social impacts await us?
