How Computer Graphics Expertise Will Further the State of the Art in Machine Learning
Today's presentation is a talk by Martin Wicke of Google on 'How Computer Graphics Expertise Will Further the State of the Art". It was presented at Siggraph 2019. Martin is in the Tensor Flow group at Google.
The session focuses on the success of deep learning in solving many problems that had long defied solution. As such, machine learning has become an essential tool in many disciplines — something that is evidenced by recent increases in the amount of papers that use related tools at SIGGRAPH.
Martin discusses knowledge transfer in the opposite direction: What insights can experts in computer graphics bring to the field of machine learning? How can knowledge about geometry, rendering, simulation, or perception be used to further the state of the art in machine learning?
