Teacher as performer project aims at creating the intelligence system to help teacher/lecturers to create drawing image/2D animation, so teachers/lecturers can create such material to support their teaching. It consists of 3 sub-systems.
1. Smart drawing: it is the system which could help users to create beautiful drawing image or text in different style.
2. Object recognition: the system could recognize the object drawn by the users according to the object category supplied by the user.
3. Animation control: the system will use the recognition result to assist users to create animation for each object. I have attended conference and meet several researchers which I could create research connection. With budget supported by the program, I can do several research tasks and can ask more students to join the group. I can proposed my research idea to real industry to create a network of collaboration.
