WordsEye Talk on April 12

a die is on the clown

On Tuesday, Bob Coyne, one of the developers of Symbolics' S-Paint system, will be speaking at the next meeting of Lisp NYC about his new project, WordsEye [via Jim Thompson].

WordsEye allows untrained users to spontaneously and interactively create 3D scenes by simply describing them. By using natural language, ordinary users can quickly create 3D scenes without having to learn special software, acquire artistic skills, or even touch a desktop window-oriented interface. Creating graphics with natural language gives a new sense of power to words and suggests applications in education and creative play as well as the creation of visual art itself. WordsEye relies on a large database of 3D models and images to depict objects and surface textures. WordsEye is written in Common Lisp and runs on Linux

It is very high. You might be eaten by an aerial grue.
