Edmond Shu-lim Ho is currently a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Hong Kong Baptist University.
He received the BSc degree in Computer Science from the Hong Kong
Baptist University, the MPhil degree from the City University of Hong Kong, and the PhD degree
from the University of Edinburgh.
His research interests include physically based animation, human motions analysis and synthesis, and robotics.
Spatial Relationship Preserving Character Motion Adaptation
In this project, we propose a new method for editing and retargeting motions
that involve close interactions between body parts of single
or multiple articulated characters or between characters and a restricted environment. In such motions, the implicit spatial relationships
between body parts/objects are important for capturing
the scene semantics. We introduce a simple structure called an
interaction mesh to represent such spatial relationships. We demonstrate its effectiveness and versatility in
synthesizing a wide variety of motions with close interactions.
Synthesizing Close Human Interactions with Topology Constraints
In this project, we proposed new methods to analysize and generate character motions that invlove close contacts.
We introduce the concept of topology coordinates, in which the topological relationships of the segments are embedded into the attributes.
There is a wide range of applications of the new methods, for example, content-based retrieval and character animation synthesis.
Reactive Human Motions
In this project, we propose a new method to generate reactive motions for arbitrary external perturbations such as pushing, pulling, or hitting.
The method can be applied to motions with arbitrary contact states such as standing, walking or running.
