Synthesia was founded by a team of researchers and entrepreneurs from UCL, Stanford, TUM and Cambridge. During the last year we’ve made several breakthroughs in the fields of vision, graphics and deep learning to be able to achieve photorealistic video synthesis. Building a production-level pipeline requires disassembling the traditional high-end visual effects pipeline and re-assembling it using a range of deep learning technologies for a fully automated approach.
As early pioneers of video synthesis technology we are excited about the possibilities that synthetic media will bring to visual content creation. Generative AI will democratise visual effects in a similar manner to what has happened in other creative disciplines such as music production, photography, game development. At Synthesia, we’re passionate about bringing these new tools to life and lessening the gap between idea and creation.
