Human Motion Synthesis

Seminar: Winter Semester 2023

Continuous Learning of Multimodal Data Streams

University of Tuebingen

nsm hps


A long-standing goal in computer vision and graphics is to capture, model, and realistically synthesize human behavior. In this seminar, we aim to study in detail the field of 3D human motion generation.

This course is suitable for Bachelor and Master level students with the solid knowledge on the following prerequisites:
  • Knowledge of linear algebra and calculus, numerical optimization, probability theory.
  • Prior participation in one of: Deep Learning, Probabilistic Machine Learning is recommended.
