Director of R&D, Thinkwell Studio Montréal
As Director of Research and Development at Thinkwell Studio Montréal, Hugo bridges the academic world and private sector, taking inspiration from the latest research in interactive technologies and finding out how these ideas play out in practical contexts.
Hugo started at Thinkwell Studio Montréal in 2015 following postdoc work in computer science, and today leads their growing R&D team as they push the limits of technologies such as people tracking, automatic video mapping, 3D sensor automatic calibration, or audio spatialization.
Hugo has participated in several European research projects related to ambient intelligence, developing technologies such as recognition of objects, actions and tasks, automated 3D facial animation, facial feature tracking and video streaming.
