SoHyeon Jeong

I am cofounder of Apagom AG which produces a real-time physics engine using machine-learning. I was a Post Doc. and a Pioneer Fellow in Computer Graphics Lab. of Prof. Dr. Markus Gross at ETH Zurich until 2017. I work on the Pioneer Fellowship project, Physics Forests, a real-time physics engine using Machine-Learning in collaboration with Lubor Ladicky from CVG. I was a research professor in 2013 at Korea University where I completed my Ph.D. in 2013 and M.S. in 2007. I majored in Computer Science Education at Korea University in 2005.

Physics Forests

Physics Forests is a very efficient and stable physics engine using machine-learning (regression forests) that speeds up the computation of physics-based simulations several magnitudes faster than existing solvers. Our water simulation solver can simulate scenes that consist of several millions of particles in real-time with GPU, including rigid body dynamics, surface generation and multiple fluids.
