AI-powered dance animation uses generative AI for choreography
Stanford University researchers developed a generative AI that can choreograph dance animations to any piece of music. The model is called Editable Dance GEneration.
\”EDGE\” shows that AI-enabled dance characters can bring a musicality and artistic level to animation that wasn’t possible before, says Karen Liu. She led a lab team with two student collaborators Jonathan Tseng, and Rodrigo Castellon.
Researchers believe the tool can help choreographers visualize 3D dance sequences to communicate ideas and design sequences with live dancers. The program’s ability to edit is key. Liu envisions that EDGE can be used to create computer animated dance sequences, allowing animators the ability to intuitively edit parts of the dance motion.
