Ken Anjyo is an R&D supervisor at OLM Digital. He has been credited as R&D supervisor for
recent Pokémon and several other movies. His research focuses on construction of mathematical
and computationally tractable models. Dr. Anjyo’s research includes recent SIGGRAPH and
IEEE CG&A papers on art-directable specular highlights and shadows for anime, the Fourier
method for editing motion capture, and direct manipulation blendshapes for facial animation. He
is co-founder of the Digital Production Symposium (DigiPro) that started in 2012 and served
as SIGGRAPH Asia 2015 Course co-chair, SIGGRAPH 2014 Computer Animation Festival
jury, and co-chair of the 2014 Mathematical Progress in Expressive Image Synthesis symposium
(MEIS2014). He is also a VES member since 2011. http://anjyo.org.
Hiroyuki Ochiai is a Professor at Institute of Mathematics for Industry, Kyushu University,
Japan. He received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Tokyo in 1993. His research
interests include representation theory of Lie groups and Lie algebras, algebraic analysis, and
group theory. He has been joining the CREST project Mathematics for Computer Graphics led by
Ken Anjyo since 2010: http://mcg.imi.kyushu-u.ac.jp/.
