Title: Balancing Speed and Fidelity in Physics Based Animation and Control  


In this talk I will give an overview of work I have done over the years exploring physically based simulation of contact, deformation, and articulated structures where there are trade-offs between computational speed and physical fidelity that can be made. I will also discuss examples that mix data-driven and physically based approaches in animation and control.
