STEEX: Steering Counterfactual Explanations with Semantics
We propose a method to generate counterfactual images that scales up to complex scenes, with application for autonomous driving tasks. To do so, we leverage recent segmentation-to-image networks.

A Neural Tangent Kernel Perspective of GANs
GAN analyses by modeling the discriminator in its infinite-width limit. By taking into account the impact of the neural architecture and gradient descent training, this modelization explains, among other results, why GANs can be trained even though an optimal arbitrarily powerful discriminator would provide no gradients.

Raising context awareness in motion forecasting
We find that state-of-the-art forecasting methods tend to overly rely on the agent's dynamics and fail to exploit the context cues provided at its input. We fix this by introducing a forecasting model equipped with a training procedure designed to promote the use of semantic contextual information.
