In-house think tank on innovation in graphic technologies.
What is the Innovation Lab?
At Chaos, we're committed to pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the world of computer graphics technologies. That's why we've established the Innovation Lab, a dedicated initiative led by Chaos co-founder Vladimir Koylazov.
The Innovation Lab encourages Chaos employees around the world to share ideas and research in rendering and related technologies, including offline and real-time rendering, machine learning, and artificial intelligence (AI). We also partner with academic institutions and other research and development hubs in computer graphics technologies to test new concepts and contribute to the long-term vision of Chaos’ products and to the future of the industry.
Innovation doesn't happen without collaboration. Whether you're an artist, industry leader, or academic researcher, you're welcome to contribute to development discussions and help solve key computer graphics challenges.
