Biography
Felix G. Harvey is a Ph.D. candidate at Polytechnique Montréal since 2016, under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Pal. He started to work animation-data analysis and synthesis using deep neural networks in 2014, when starting his M.Sc. in deep learning at Polytechnique Montreal under the supervision of Dr. Pal and Dr. Michel Gagnon. His work includes semi-supervised motion classification and clustering, adversarial generation and conditional sequence synthesis using deep recurrent neural networks. His early work on animation began at an early age, making 2D flash animations that became exaggeratedly popular on the internet. He's been making stick-figures move since then.
