Adrien Treuille Innovates!

Adrien Treuille, an assistant professor of computer science and robotics at Carnegie Mellon University who specializes in real-time computer simulation techniques, has been recognized by Technology Review magazine as one of the world’s top 35 innovators under the age of 35.

Treuille's research contributions to technology have greatly affected the development of film and 3D animation, making automated animation easier and more efficient to create through technology for creatives who need animation on the fly.

From TECHburgher:
Work by Treuille provided the basis for Draft Track, the Emmy-nominated special effect used in ESPN telecasts to “see the air” behind NASCAR race cars. He also contributed to the innovative online game Foldit, which harnesses the brainpower of tens of thousands of game players to help biochemists unlock the mystery of how proteins fold, and is developing a new massive multiplayer competitive game to simulate RNA evolution and gain insight into the beginnings of life.
