Please note: This seminar will take place in DC 1304 and virtually over Zoom.
Noam Aigerman, Research Scientist
In this talk I will discuss my recent efforts in developing techniques for AI-driven shape mapping, i.e., enabling AI frameworks to manipulate, modify, and retarget 3D geometry. This task has the potential to automate many critical applications that involve 3D shapes, such as 3D design, medical imaging, video-to-3D, and physical simulation, to name a few. However, achieving AI-driven mapping capabilities is a highly-intricate problem, due to the inherent difficulties in applying deep-learning techniques to 3D geometry.
This difficulty has been, to a significant degree, overcome by one of my latest works, which provides a fundamental, versatile framework for AI-driven mapping of shapes through neural jacobian fields. This will be the focal point of my talk, along with a complementary work which tackles the more specific (and restrictive) setting of computing surface-to-surface mappings.
