Event description: 

Abstract: Deep learning has revolutionized our ability to generate novel images and 3D shapes. 

Neural networks are typically trained to map a high-dimensional latent code to full realistic samples. In this talk, I will present two recent works focusing on generation of handwritten text and 3D shapes. In these works, we take a different approach and generate image and shape samples using a more granular part-based decomposition, demonstrating that the whole is not necessarily “greater than the sum of its parts”. I will also discuss how our generation by decomposition approach allows for a semantic manipulation of 3D shapes and improved handwritten text recognition performance.
