The GENEA Challenge 2022: Full-body speech-driven gesture generation
The GENEA (Generation and Evaluation of Non-verbal Behaviour for Embodied
Agents) Grand Challenge 2022 aims at bringing together researchers that use
different methods for non-verbal-behaviour generation and evaluation, and
hopes to stimulate the discussions on how to improve both the generation
methods and the evaluation of the results.
The challenge topic is speech-driven gesture generation. Participants are
provided a large, common dataset of speech (audio+aligned text) and 3D
motion to develop their systems, and then use these systems to generate
motion on given test inputs. The generated motion clips are rendered onto a
common virtual agent and evaluated for aspects such as motion quality and
appropriateness in a crowdsourced user study. More details will be
available when the dataset is released. You can refer to the previous
aware that the challenge dataset is different from the previous one).
