Object understanding is a fundamental problem in computer vision and it has been extensively researched in recent years thanks to the availability of powerful GPUs and labelled data, especially in the context of images. However, 3D object understanding is still not on par with its 2D domain and deep learning for 3D has not been fully explored yet. In this dissertation, I work on two approaches, both of which advances the state-of-the-art results in 3D classification and segmentation.
The first approach, called MVRNN, is based multi-view paradigm. In contrast to MVCNN which does not generate consistent result across different views, by treating the multi-view images as a temporal sequence, our MVRNN correlates the features and generates coherent segmentation across different views. MVRNN demonstrated state-of-the-art performance on the Princeton Segmentation Benchmark dataset.
The second approach, called PointGrid, is a hybrid method which combines points and regular grid structure. 3D points can retain fine details but irregular, which is challenge for deep learning methods. Volumetric grid is simple and has regular structure, but does not scale well with data resolution. Our PointGrid, which is simple, allows the fine details to be consumed by normal convolutions under a coarser resolution grid. PointGrid achieved state-of-the-art performance on ModelNet40 and ShapeNet datasets in 3D classification and object part segmentation.
