Generative Deep Learning for the Creation of 3D Objects

Master Thesis

Research Areas

This project is a collaboration between the Signal Processing and Speech Communication Laboratory and the Institute of Architecture and Media at TU Graz. The overall topic and aim is the development of generative Deep Learning methods for the purpose of 3D object creation. This project combines state of the art Neural Network algorithms with the field of digital art and 3D design.

For generative deep learning applications usable datasets are rare and hard to come by. However, the Institute of architecture and media has developed multiple parametric models that produce a diverse dataset of 3d geometries/objects. The aim is to train various neural networks with these datasets to create new objects. The current focus lies on Variational Autoencoders, however other generative methods (GANS, Style-transfer, etc) are open for exploration. Further the topic of the 3d model representation (Voxel, Mesh, Point Clouds, etc) in neural networks will be part of this exploration.

This project is hands-on, meaning: coding, experimenting with different deep learning methods, development of new generative workflows, and creation of digital 3d objects are part of the main work. This project combines the disciplines of computer science/ML with the field of 3D design, digital art, and architecture. The student will with his/her master thesis be part and contribute to this ongoing research project.
