Abstract

Large scale scene generation is a computationally intensive operation, and added complexities arise when dynamic content generation is required. We propose a system capable of generating virtual content from non-expert input. The proposed system uses a 3-dimensional variational autoencoder to interactively generate new virtual objects by interpolating between extant objects in a learned low-dimensional space, as well as by randomly sampling in that space. We present an interface that allows a user to intuitively explore the latent manifold, taking advantage of the network’s ability to perform algebra in the latent space to help infer context and generalize to previously unseen inputs.
