The poster merges into one application the research of three BIGMATH fellows: Rongjiao Ji, Filipa Valdeira and Stevo Racković. They have developed a model for online human-like avatar communication, where a user only needs a simple camera to produce his own avatar. It will not only replicate his expressions and movements, but also enhance a chosen emotion.
The final round of the competition is on Saturday, 16th of January: it will be recorded and broadcasted during the meeting, on February 8-11. So stay tuned to see our poster and find out the results!
We can classify all human emotions into two main groups: Positive (Happiness, Excitement and Tenderness) or Negative (Anger, Sadness and Fear). As part of the BIGMATH subproject in the application field of Human Face Reconstruction, our PhD students Stevo Racković and Rongjiao Ji released a website presenting a video with facial expressions: would you like to estimate in which groups these expressions can be classified? The video has been realised in cooperation with the BIGMATH industrial partner 3Lateral.
During a scientific session at the 9th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics, which took place in Valencia on 15-19 July 2019, our PhD students Filipa Valdeira, Stevo Racković, and Rongjiao Ji presented projects that utilize big data techniques to reconstruct the human face. Applications ranged from medical imaging to digital animation.
As satellite event of the #BIGMATH course on stochastic geometric methods for the modelling and the statistical analysis of random shapes at University of Milan, our PhD candidate #RongjiaoJi presented her research to the project team and PhD colleagues. Congratulations!
Targeting stochastic geometric methods for the modelling and the statistical analysis of random shapes, the second BIGMATH course is taking place at University of Milan, July 1-5, 2019. Our PhD fellows are attending the course which is open to other students and complemented with computer labs where case studies are submitted following a hands-on training approach.
Until 7th July 2019, it will be possible to submit proposals for the Science, Science to Business and Careers Programme. Key players from the world of science and technology, innovation, entrepreneurship, politics, communication and all those who want to bring innovative ideas, strategies and formats on the relationship between science and society can present their ideas through the website. The bids must fall into one of the topics identified for the 2020 edition and will be selected by international experts.
BIGMATH abstract addresses the Big Data Challenges for Mathematics.
The new EU R&I Framework Programme will be launched for the period 2021-2027. Horizon Europe will be streamlined according to four main objectives. Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions will be fostered under the Pillar 1 “Open Science”. The draft programme confirms and simplifies the current action lines: MSCA Doctorates (for early stage researchers and industrial doctorates), MSCA Postdocs (for experienced researchers and individual fellowships), MSCA Exchanges (for European and global mobility), MSCA Cofund (for synergies with National programmes) and MSCA Citizens (for outreach and awareness raising actions).
BIGMATH team attended a workshop at Polythecnic of Milan about the next calls and the future opportunites offered by MSCA to young and experienced researchers both in the current and forthcoming programming period – Milan, June, 13 2019.
