    Chris Bregler is an Assistant Professor in Computer Science at Stanford University. He received his Diplom in Computer Science from Karlsruhe University in 1993 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from u.c. Berkeley in 1995 and 1998. He also worked for several companies including IBM, Hewlett Packard, and Interval. He is a member of the Stanford Computer Graphics and the Robotics Laboratory. His research interests are in the areas of Computer Vision, Graphics, and Learning. Currently he focuses on topics in visual motion capture, human face, speech, and body gesture recognition and animation, and image based modeling and rendering.  

    SIGGRAPH 1998

    Chris Bregler received his undergraduate degree from University of Karlsruhe in Germany in 1993, and is now completing his Ph.D. in computer science at the University of California at Berkeley. Before coming to Berkeley he started the computer lipreading project in Professor Alex Waibel’s group (University of Karlsruhe / Carnegie Mellon University), and continued working on machine learning, lip-tracking, and speechreading systems with Steve Omohundro and Yochai Konig at ICSI in Berkeley. At interval Research Corporation, together with Michele Covell and Malcolm Slaney, he created the Video Rewrite system that uses such analysis techniques and graphics techniques for image-based facial animation. As a completion to his thesis at U.C. Berkeley with advisors Jitendra Malik and Jerry Feldman he is working on applying new visual motion tracking techniques to image-based animation of entire bodies. His publications range from papers, book chapters, and patents in the field of Computer Vision, Computer Graphics, Speech Recognition, Statistical Learning, and Neural Networks.
