Professor Daniel Sýkora from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering was awarded the Neuron Prize

The Neuron Prize for Young Scientists was presented at Archa Theater in Prague on May 24. Associate Professor Daniel Sýkora from the Department of Computer Graphics and Interaction of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Czech Technical University was among the winners. It was the first time the prize was awarded in the field of computer science. Associate Professor Daniel Sýkora won the prize thanks to the algorithms helping illustrators with stylization of 3D drawings.

Professor Daniel Sýkora is devoted to the development of time-saving algorithms for illustrators in routine activities. In 2016, for example, he introduced the StyLit 3D auto styles tool. It is able to reproduce the artist's style to create synthetic paintings that can even confuse an expert. The unique software is more sophisticated than available commercial tools. The unique solution of Associate Professor Sýkora, lays in the synthesis of the picture based on the original, a new research direction of computer graphics.
