**There will be a talk of broad interest by Chris Bregler from NYU in 
the PIXL lunch talk series
at noon on Monday in CS 402.  All are welcome.

*From Eye-Balls to Ball-Games: Next-Gen Motion Capture for Science and 
/Chris Bregler, NYU

This talk will cover several research projects centered around the use 
of vision and motion capture for animation, recognition, and gaming. 
This includes human movements as diverse as subtle eye-blinks, 
lip-motions, spine-deformations, human walks and dances, politicians, 
base-ball pitchers, and the production of the largest motion capture 
game to date. The technical content of the talk focuses on the trade-off 
between data-driven models of human motion vs. analytically derived and 
perceptually driven models using dancers, animators, linguists, and 
other domain experts. This is demonstrated by sub-pixel tracking in 
Hollywood productions, reading the body-language of public figures, 
visualizing the pitches of NY Yankees Mariano Rivera, and the making of 
crowd mocap games in various cultures.
