Last year, Nvidia trained a neural network to autonomously generate fully-textured 3D models based on a single photo.
Researchers trained a neural network using a large corpus of 3D models, images that had been transformed into 3D models, and 2D images showing an object from various angles. The result: a new system that can render 3D models without any need for human intervention.
Practical applications include robots that can autonomously generate realistic models of their environments using only 2D images.
