  • Wooden blocks are a common toy for infants, allowing them to develop motor skills and gain intuition about the physical behavior of the world. [...] Key Method This data allows us to train large convolutional network models which can accurately predict the outcome, as well as estimating the block trajectories. The models are also able to generalize in two important ways: (i) to new physical scenarios, e.g. towers with an additional block and (ii) to images of real wooden blocks, where it obtains a performance…Expand Abstract
