Title:


    Normalized Avatar Digitization for Communication in VR

Developer(s):


Entry Number: 122


Description:


    We introduce a highly robust GAN-based framework for digitizing a normalized 3D avatar of a person from a single unconstrained photo. We demonstrate a multi-user VR chatting system using Oculus Quest 2 where performances are driven by the headset and controllers and facial animation through speech-to-face synthesis.
