Have you ever wondered why Siri does not have a face? What if she did?

What if you had a personal assistant that not only had a personality but looked you in the eye and sensed your emotions?

It is likely we will soon see a growth in cognitive agents – some with very real human-like faces. This session will give you a glimpse of that brave new world today.

Using the very latest advanced computer simulations, face AI mapping and rendering technology, we seek to explore the commercial and ethical issues of giving technology a face.

Come face the future with us in this special DDRG event, as Mike Seymour showcases “Digital Mike” for the first time in Australia, after its premier a few weeks ago at the SIGGRAPH conference in Los Angeles.

Hao Li

Mike Seymour will be joined by LA-based Professor Hao Li from the University of Southern California who will shocase revolutionary new technology to create realistic digital faces with retail smartphone technology.

The future is coming fast. Be part of it.
