The Daily Herald reports that researchers at Brigham Young University have created new techniques in which a computer will create animations more realistic and quickly. These researchers have come up with a new software technology which allows computers, through the use of artificial intelligence, to learn to animate computer-generated characters by analyzing examples given by a human. Thus, based on those examples, the computer can make choices concerning the animated characters’ actions, behaviors, and responses, even when the computer is given an uncommon situation.
