HyperNeRF: A Higher-Dimensional Representation for Topologically Varying Neural Radiance Fields By applying ideas from level set methods, we can represent topologically changing scenes with NeRFs.
SIGGRAPH Asia, 2021
FiG-NeRF: Figure Ground Neural Radiance Fields for 3D Object Category Modelling Given a lot of images of an object category, you can train a NeRF to render them from novel views and interpolate between different instances.
3DV, 2021
Nerfies: Deformable Neural Radiance Fields Learning deformation fields with a NeRF let's you reconstruct non-rigid scenes with high fidelity.
ICCV, 2021
LatentFusion: End-to-End Differentiable Reconstruction and Rendering for Unseen Object Pose Estimation By learning to predict geometry from images, you can do zero-shot pose estimation with a single network.
CVPR, 2020
PhotoShape: Photorealistic Materials for Large-Scale Shape Collections By pairing large collections of images, 3D models, and materials, you can create thousands of photorealistic 3D models fully automatically.
