The recent work of Siddhartha Chaudhuri, Institute Chair Assistant Professor, Dept of CSE, IIT Bombay on a generative model of 3D shape structure, using recursive autoencoders, was chosen to be featured in a press release of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) via the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The work was done in collaboration with researchers at NUDT, Adobe Research, Simon Fraser University and Stanford University. Prof. Chaudhuri and his colleague Kevin Xu will present the research at the ACM SIGGRAPH conference in Los Angeles at the end of the month.
ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, is the world's largest educational and scientific computing society, uniting educators, researchers, and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources, and address the field's challenges. ACM SIGGRAPH is a special interest group within ACM that serves as an interdisciplinary community for members in research, technology, and applications in computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH is the world's leading annual interdisciplinary educational experience showcasing the latest in computer graphics and interactive techniques. SIGGRAPH 2017, marking the 44th annual conference hosted by ACM SIGGRAPH, will take place from 30 July-3 August at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles.
In addition to Xu, the research team was comprised of Jun Li, also from National University of Defense Technology; Ersin Yumer, research scientist at Adobe Research; Hao Zhang, professor of computing science at Simon Fraser University; and Leonidas Guibas, professor of computer science at Stanford University. Zhang worked on the project as a visiting professor in Guibas' lab at Stanford during Xu’s academic sabbatical.
