NVIDIA Researchers Bring Images to Life with AI

Close your left eye as you look at this screen. Now close your right eye and open your left — you’ll notice that your field of vision shifts depending on which eye you’re using. That’s because while we see in two dimensions, the images captured by your retinas are combined to provide depth and produce a sense of three-dimensionality. Machine learning models need this same capability so that they can accurately understand image data. NVIDIA researchers have now made this possible by creating a rendering framework called DIB-R — a differentiable interpolation-based renderer — that produces 3D objects from 2D images.
