NeRF-VAE: A Geometry Aware 3D Scene Generative Model

  title={NeRF-VAE: A Geometry Aware 3D Scene Generative Model},
  author={Adam R. Kosiorek and Heiko Strathmann and Daniel Zoran and Pol Moreno and Ros{\'a}lia G. Schneider and Sovna Mokr'a and Danilo Jimenez Rezende},
We propose NeRF-VAE, a 3D scene generative model that incorporates geometric structure via NeRF and differentiable volume rendering. In contrast to NeRF, our model takes into account shared structure across scenes, and is able to infer the structure of a novel scene -- without the need to re-train -- using amortized inference. NeRF-VAE's explicit 3D rendering process further contrasts previous generative models with convolution-based rendering which lacks geometric structure. Our model is a VAE… Expand
Decomposing 3D Scenes into Objects via Unsupervised Volume Segmentation
We present ObSuRF, a method which turns a single image of a scene into a 3D model represented as a set of Neural Radiance Fields (NeRFs), with each NeRF corresponding to a different object. A singleExpand
Unsupervised Discovery of Object Radiance Fields
UORF, trained on multi-view RGB images without annotations, learns to decompose complex scenes with diverse, textured background from a single image and performs well on unsupervised 3D scene segmentation, novel view synthesis, and scene editing on three datasets. Expand
SIMONe: View-Invariant, Temporally-Abstracted Object Representations via Unsupervised Video Decomposition
This work presents an unsupervised variational approach to the compositional structure of any given scene, and learns to infer two sets of latent representations from RGB video input, which allows the model, SIMONe, to represent object attributes in an allocentric manner which does not depend on viewpoint.

NeRF in detail: Learning to sample for view synthesis
Neural radiance fields methods have demonstrated impressive novel view synthesis performance by querying a neural network at points sampled along the ray to obtain the density and colour of the sampled points, and integrating this information using the rendering equation. Expand
An Information-Theoretic Perspective on Proper Quaternion Variational Autoencoders
This paper analyze the QVAE under an information-theoretic perspective, studying the ability of the H-proper model to approximate improper distributions as well as the built-in H- Proper ones and the loss of entropy due to the improperness of the input signal. Expand

Scene Representation Networks: Continuous 3D-Structure-Aware Neural Scene Representations
The proposed Scene Representation Networks (SRNs), a continuous, 3D-structure-aware scene representation that encodes both geometry and appearance, are demonstrated by evaluating them for novel view synthesis, few-shot reconstruction, joint shape and appearance interpolation, and unsupervised discovery of a non-rigid face model.
