Deep Learning for Facial Animation

Have you heard of deep learning? It's been around a while but has only recently gained mainstream attention. Companies like IBM, Microsoft and Google have all invested in it, and Speech Graphics is no exception.

Joris, one of our researchers, gives some insight into what deep learning is, and how Speech Graphics is utilizing it to improve our facial animation technology and products: http://www.speech-graphics.com/deep_learning_facial_animation/
