Our world has been heading towards the Age of Robotics for some time, but with COVID, we're now speeding there! Like A.I., robots will influence every part of our life and work, and our industry is no exception. We are pleased to present an amazing lineup of presenters, showing the recent history of robots in entertainment and the robot/computer graphics connection today..and into the future.
Were you aware that the motion control camera was a robot? I never thought of it before as such but it's just one instance of robots in the entertainment field. Each of our presenters will talk about how they use robots either using a graphical interface like Maya to animate them, or creating VFX using robots as in the movie, Gravity, or test out robot systems using a graphical environment like the ISAAC Gym from NVIDIA.
The potential of robots in entertainment is only just beginning!
