Realistic computer-generated movements based on images directly obtained from human muscles, and web apps 100% safe for users are close to becoming a reality thanks to the projects proposed by Dr. Moisés Alencastre ad Dr. Raúl Monroy, Tecnológico de Monterrey professor/researchers at the Santa Fe and Estado de México Campuses, respectively, who took part in the Google Faculty Research Awards 2014 and were allocated funds to develop them.

The Google Faculty Research Awards were created by the Internet giant to support college professors all over the world in categories such as education, mobile, privacy, security, computer science, and engineering, among others. This is the first time that two Mexican researchers are recognized for their research projects.

Dr. Moisés Alencastre, Santa Fe Campus School of Design, Architecture, and Engineering professor/researcher, heads the project "Visualization of human muscles to generate realistic movement", which intends to create a mathematical algorithm capable of doing so, was awarded $35,000 to further develop his research.

Dr. Raúl Monroy, Estado de México Campus Information and Computer Technology Department professor, heads the "Formal Web Application Verification" project, which aims to verify the security offered by any web application to the data provided by users. He received $30,000 in funding for his project.
