w/ Daniel Sýkora & David Kunz (FEL ČVUT)

Join us for an interactive session with our guests from the Department of Computer Graphics and Interaction (FEL ČVUT), Daniel Sýkora and David Kunz. Dive into a collective exploration of innovative tools they’ve crafted, enabling artists to creatively interact with Artificial Intelligence. Their department’s ongoing research has led to the creation of a pioneering tool for interactive video stylization. This tool uniquely enables artists to sketch on paper, and, using webcam input, dynamically stylize real-time video footage. What’s more, it’s been optimized for text input, allowing video stylization based on text prompts. 

During this session, you’ll get hands-on experience with the tool and engage in enriching discussions with its creators. Bring your artistic curiosity and imagination to the table!

Prof. Ing. Daniel Sýkora, Ph.D.

Daniel Sýkora is a professor at the Department of Computer Graphics and Interaction, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University in Prague. He leads a research group focused on the development of algorithms that help artists and animators in their work. Their goal is to eliminate repetitive time-consuming tasks while preserving the uniqueness of the hand-created artwork, thus providing full creative freedom.

David Kunz

Computer Science student at CTU in Prague, working towards a Master's degree in AI and Machine Learning. David's focus is on video stylization as part of his master's thesis. Outside of academia, he has worked on several projects as a frontend engineer.
