Please join us for our next meeting on Tuesday, April 12th from 7:00 pm
to 9:00 pm at Trinity Lutheran Church.
Bob Coyne, entrepeneur and old-school Lisp developer will be presenting
a special lisp-eyes-only preview of WordsEye. It is the culmination of
years of work and highlights the technology that he developed. It is,
of course, written in Lisp.
WordsEye: Creating 3D scenes from textual descriptions
WordsEye allows untrained users to spontaneously and
interactively create 3D scenes by simply describing them. By
using natural language, ordinary users can quickly create 3D
scenes without having to learn special software, acquire
artistic skills, or even touch a desktop window-oriented
interface. Creating graphics with natural language gives a
new sense of power to words and suggests applications in
education and creative play as well as the creation of visual
art itself. WordsEye relies on a large database of 3D models
and images to depict objects and surface textures. WordsEye
is written in Common Lisp and runs on Linux.
