Capture and Process Volumetric Assets: Tim and Alex Porter

Intel® Software Innovators Tim and Alex Porter demonstrate their Volumation platform that captures and optimizes images in a one-click process. The result is 3D animated images of any object for entertainment with increased realism and immersion.

Innovators of Tomorrow: Corey Warning & Will Lewis

Innovators of Tomorrow is a monthly feature that focuses on developers in our Intel® Software Innovator program. In this episode, we talk to Corey Warning and Will Lewis from Rose City Games in Portland, Oregon. Their new game in development, The World Next Door, is a narrative-driven, action-adventure game inspired by the emotional storytelling and thrilling action of both anime and indie games.

Intel® AI DevCon: An Innovator Perspective

Select innovators had the opportunity to travel to San Francisco and demonstrate their work at Intel’s premier AI event, Intel® AI DevCon. This event brought together top minds in data science, machine and deep learning, and more.

Tejumade Afonja: Making a Difference in Nigeria

A thirst for knowledge and a determined drive are two crucial characteristics motivating Tejumade Afonja. See how she is using AI to make a big difference in Nigeria by building up the AI community through her AI Saturdays Lagos Workshops.

How Can a Spacecraft Use AI? – Part 1

Imagine the state-of-the-art technology and AI that is needed to maintain a high quality of living on a spacecraft for a 300-day journey to Mars. In his first part of a three-part series, Justin Shenk covers how computer vision and AI can be implemented to increase quality of life in space.

Innovation Updates

Developers, hobbyists, and enthusiasts came together to catch up on the state of AR and VR in the industry in Orlando. Over 50 people from the community were able to network and view a demonstration of one of the community’s very own projects: Virtual Battlegrounds.

Test the Limits of Real-Time Graphics

Cristiano Siqueira uses the powerful gaming engine Unreal Engine* 4, the Vulkan* API, and the multicores in an Intel® Core™ i9+ processor to demonstrate the true extent of what can be done with real-time graphics.

Experience Visual Effects and 3D Visualizations

Marc Potocnik presents his latest and greatest animation work created at his studio, renderbaron. With a focus on shading, lighting, and rendering to create 3D visualizations for Cinema 4D*, his approach uses local illumination only. This gives him absolute control over every lighting parameter and speeds up rendering of animations in his CPU-based pipeline.

Drone delivering a package in a warehouseUse Drones and IoT for Warehouse Monitoring

As a cost-effective approach for monitoring warehouses, Shriram KV uses quadcopters to enhance efficiency. A lot of inventory loss involves inefficient, manual monitoring techniques. An affordable, accurate, and viable option is using a drone to fly inside a warehouse to track goods, provide updates, and eliminate the chance for lost inventory.

Squirrel and two birds at a feederRecursive Machine Learning at the Edge: A Case Study for Training a Bird Species Identifier

Using an existing image recognition model, Innovator Paul Langdon built a secondary seed library that extends a bird classifier. It results in a more specific model for identifying specific bird species. The methodology easily adapts to any subclassification scenario. It also provides automation for model training while collecting field data at the edge using the AWS DeepLens* machine learning platform with AWS Greengrass* and SageMaker.

I O and Europa playersIoEuropa Game

Innovator Mark Stumbris is seeking collaborators to help incorporate VR and AI into this educational, open source game that makes you question war and socioeconomic standards. In this game, conflict erupts between Jupiter’s moons, Io, and Europa, as trade agreements and closer orbits bring them together in ways that are volatile to their environments.
