Welcome to the iViz Lab

Simon Fraser University in the School SIAT. (see Research).

iVizlab is - “An interdisciplinary human centric AI research lab that strives to make computational systems bend more to the human experience by incorporating biological, cognitive and behavioral knowledge models.” - Dr. Steve DiPaola

Our Focus: Computer Modelling Human Expression/Cognition/Creativity – iVizLab is focused on AI based computationally modelling (and understanding) of human characteristics such as expression, emotion, behavior, empathy and creativity; including computer graphics based facial/character systems and AI based cognitive modelling systems.

Our Vision: This “Expression Based Interactive or Intelligent Visualization (or iViz) Lab” is grounded in the engineering of advanced AI techniques but also computer graphics, data visualization and user interfaces and strives to encompass work from the areas of cognitive science, neuroscience, and the arts.
