Find out about the latest efforts at Google and the USC Institute for Creative Technologies to bridge the real and virtual worlds through photography, lighting, and machine learning. Explore the new DeepView solution for Light Field Video - Immersive Motion Pictures that you can move around in after they have been recorded. We'll present the latest light field video techniques that record six-degrees-of-freedom virtual reality where subjects can come close enough to be within arm's reach. Check out Google's new Light Stage system, paired with Machine Learning techniques, is enabling new techniques for lighting estimation from faces for AR and interactive portrait relighting on mobile phone hardware, and how both of these techniques enable advances in virtual production filmmaking, revolutionizing how movies and television are made.
