PhD student Lele Chen and Professor Xu win Best Paper Award at the 17th ACM SIGGRAPH VRCAI
Lele Chen, a second-year PhD student working in Professor Chenliang Xu's group, and collaborators from OPPO US Research Center, win the Best Paper Award at the 17th ACM SIGGRAPH International Conference on Virtual-Reality Continuum and its Applications in Industry.
The paper entitled "3D Human Avatar Digitalization from a Single Image" proposes a pipeline that reconstructs 3D human shape avatar at a glance. According to Lele Chen, "Our approach simultaneously reconstructs 3D human geometry and whole body texture map with only a single RGB image as input. We also developed a mobile application that demonstrates this capability in AR/VR settings."
