  1. Abstract

    Current AI systems still fail to match the flexibility, robustness, and generalizability of human intelligence: how even a young child can manipulate objects to achieve goals of their own invention or in cooperation, or can learn the essentials of a complex new task within minutes. We need AI with such embodied intelligence: transforming raw sensory inputs to rapidly build a rich understanding of the world for seeing, finding, and constructing things, achieving goals, and communicating with others. This problem of physical scene understanding is challenging because it requires a holistic interpretation of scenes, objects, and humans, including their geometry, physics, functionality, semantics, and modes of interaction, building upon studies across vision, learning, graphics, robotics, and AI. My research aims to address this problem by integrating bottom‐up recognition models, deep networks, and inference algorithms with top‐down structured graphical models, simulation engines, and probabilistic programs.

    Neural scene representations, both continuous and discrete, have recently emerged as a powerful new paradigm for 3D scene understanding. Recent efforts have tackled unsupervised discovery of object-centric neural scene representations. However, the high cost of ray-marching, exacerbated by the fact that each object representation has to be ray-marched separately, leads to insufficiently sampled radiance fields and thus, noisy renderings, poor framerates, and high memory and time complexity during training and rendering. Here, we propose to represent objects in an object-centric, compositional scene representation as light fields. We propose a novel light field compositor module that enables reconstructing the global light field from a set of object-centric light fields. Dubbed Compositional Object Light Fields (COLF), our method enables unsupervised learning of object-centric neural scene representations, state-of-the-art reconstruction and novel view synthesis performance on standard datasets, and rendering and training speeds at orders of magnitude faster than existing 3D approaches.
