Deep Learning for Geometric Computing

CVPR 2020 Workshop and Challenge

Videos of the keynote speakers:



Computer vision approaches have made tremendous efforts toward understanding shape from various data formats, especially since entering the deep learning era. Although accurate results have been obtained in detection, recognition, and segmentation, there is less attention and research on extracting topological and geometric information from shapes. These geometric representations provide compact and intuitive abstractions for modeling, synthesis, compression, matching, and analysis. Extracting such representations is significantly different from segmentation and recognition tasks, as they contain both local and global information about the shape.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from computer vision, computer graphics, and mathematics to advance the state of the art in topological and geometric shape analysis using deep learning.
