Seeing Double? Prof Adrian Hilton – Invited Speaker at the Royal Society
Friday 23 March 2012
As the graphics in computer games and films improve, what are the limitations when creating human figures? Why does our brain struggle to accept these representations as genuine human forms? Professor Adrian Hilton, a computer scientist and Dr Kristine Krug, a neuroscientist, will delve deeper into the challenges faced when generating computer models of humans.
This event is part of a series of the Café Scientifique events throughout the year, aiming to provide a forum for the debate of scientific ideas. It takes place on Monday 26 March (6.30 to 8.00 pm) at the Royal Society in London. For more information, please visit
