About Company:

We aim to disrupt the facial motion capture market by leveraging deep neural networks to map, deduce, and identify highly-realistic facial expressions. Our production software will replicate the work of the world’s best animators to yield superior quality facial animations with faster character turnout.

Summary of Project:

  • Identify key facial expressions over a time series of images utilizing CNN and LSTM
  • Interpolation between facial expressions utilizing AI.
  • Head, eye, mouth, and eyelid tracking using computer vision.
  • Sentiment analysis of facial expression (classification)

Research Objectives/Sub-Objectives:

  • Facial expression sentiment analysis and motion interpolation over a time series of images 


    • Identify facial expression over a time series of images
    • Sentiment analysis of facial expression
    • Interpolation between facial expression over time series
    • Output data of facial expression interpolation and sentiment classification over time series.

    Expertise and Skills Needed:

    • Must: Deep Learning (with experience with CNN, RNN, LSTM)
    • Preferable: Artificial Intelligence, Computer Vision
