Yesterday we learned former AMD marketing guy Chris Hook landed a job at Intel to promote the chip giant's upcoming discrete graphics card pipeline and now we learn where Roy Taylor ended up.
Taylor served in various roles at NVIDIA from 2000 to late 2010 and landed a corporate vice president position at AMD in January 2013. From November 2014 to February 2018, Taylor was Corporate Vice President of Media & Entertainment of AMD Studios.
Earlier this month, Taylor became advisor to the board of Cubic Motion. This is a company that makes motion capture technology for video games and film.
Roy Taylor said:
"I am delighted to advise Cubic Motion as they build their global business. Cubic Motion are clearly the world leaders in computer vision for the highest quality real-time facial capture and animation. My aim is to assist Cubic Motion with their growth in film, technology and visual effects.”
Cubic Motion Chairman Andy Wood said:
“We are excited to welcome Roy Taylor to Cubic Motion’s Advisory Board. We have announced that our technology and tools are now available for licensing. This not only brings a new era of performance capture, it also requires Cubic Motion to think and act in new and dynamic ways. Roy brings a wealth of knowledge that will support our expansion and greatly benefit all those involved in these exciting times.”
Here's a demonstration of Cubic Motion's technology. You may remember this clip as the Siren demo was widely covered last month.
