Ubisoft Bordeaux

Founded in September 2017, Ubisoft Bordeaux works with passion on the biggest AAAA’s game in order to offer the best gaming experiences to our players. Today, the studio has more than 400 talents, from 15 different nationalities, who work on licenses such as Assassin's Creed, Beyond Good & Evil 2, plus other unannounced free-to-play games. We are also working on exciting technologies with the Anvil team, Online services teams and with La Forge who seek to validate the value of technological innovations.

La Forge

As Ubisoft’s research and development group, La Forge brings together experts from the industry and academic sector to prototype technological innovations and improve the game-making process. With this focus on applied research, we aim to fill the gap between theory and practice, while contributing to solving real-world problems through scientific publications.

Job Description

In recent years, there have been significant advancements in the field of Neural Rendering. More specifically, recent works have demonstrated the ability of these techniques to effectively represent the material properties of 3D objects using a set of neural textures and a decoder network. However, despite this progress, these methods often overlook the issue of storage size as he learned neural features are usually stored in an uncompressed format. This makes the memory footprint of neural materials quite large making them unpractical for real-time applications. This becomes especially evident when we consider the memory capacity of mainstream hardware devices.

Our aim is to leverage the power of neural rendering techniques to encode complex, high-quality materials commonly seen in film production. However, the real challenge lies in enabling the decoding of these materials in real-time while significantly reducing the storage requirements of the neural textures.

Our goal is to find a solution that strikes a balance between the richness of the materials we can represent and the practical constraints of real-time rendering, all while ensuring a manageable storage size for neural textures.
