[D] Paper explained – DROID-SLAM: Deep Visual SLAM for Monocular, Stereo, and RGB-D Cameras by Zachary Teed and Jia Deng et al. 5-minute summary

The idea of recording a short video and creating a full-fledged 3D scene from it always seemed like magic to me. And now it seems that thanks to the efforts of Zachary Teed and Jia Deng this magic is closer to reality than ever. They propose a DL-based SLAM algorithm that uses recurrent updates and …

[R] NVIDIA and Tel Aviv Researchers Propose ‘StyleGAN-NADA’, A Text-Driven Method That Converts a Pre-Trained AI Generator to New Domains Using Only a Textual Prompt and No Training Data

GANs have revolutionized the image generation process, allowing for better results in classification and regression tasks. They can capture distribution of images through their semantic-rich latent space making it more efficient than traditional methods such as autoencoders or generative adversarial networks. Although GANs have shown incredible results, their ability to generate high-quality images is limited …
