KIRI Innovations

AI and Neural Networks have stormed the 3D industry in the last couple of years, introducing us to a myriad of innovative technologies like NeRFs, NeuS, NeuralAngelo, and 3D Gaussian Splatting. These technologies all promise to create photorealistic 3D assets from photos or videos, but are they all they're claimed up to be? Amidst the dazzling social media posts and research papers, actual 3D creators and game developers rarely have the opportunity nor the skills to try them. In this presentation, we'll embark on a journey through these cutting-edge technologies, aiming to demystify 3D Gaussian Splatting and its counterparts. By the end of this session, you'll not only understand the significance of 3D Gaussian Splatting but also appreciate its limitations. Our aim is to equip you with a deeper understanding of these technologies and a glimpse into the exciting future of 3D in the world of game development.


You will learn:
- How to make 3D gaussian splatting on your computer or smartphone
- How to use 3D Gaussian Splatting in Unreal Engine 5
- What are the limitations of 3D Gaussian Splatting

Intended Audience

You should attend if you are a technology pioneer who wants to experiment with the newest technologies in actual projects. A brief understanding of Unreal Engine and 3D Gaussian Splatting is recommended, but if you're not familiar with them, don't worry - we are going to delve into these topics.
