For more information please visit interdigital.com Description : Interdigital Immersive Video lab is working on semantic-based technology for videoconferences. In this context digital human data is key to estimate semantic features correctly and precisely such as facial expressions, lighting conditions (e.g. light positions or specular reflections) and background. The MetaVideo group has worked on hair modeling, encoding and segmentation for a couple of years in relation with postproduction studios and has built a large VFX haircut database. The group would like to explore the possibility to leverage its dataset to coding hair semantic information. The goal of the internship will be to: Generate synthetic data of hair dynamic video data on Unreal Engine Implement a solution to segment hair on human front monocular video Propose a solution to a fitting problem between segmented hair and haircuts database The intern will be included in the Video lab in Rennes, France within the Interactive Media project. All the 3D assets (haircuts, head mesh) are already available. Professional tools such as Autodesk Maya or SideFX Houdini will also be provided in complement to a geometry processing framework.
