Neural Radiance Fields with Light Transport Occlusions

[CFAR Rising Star Lecture Series]
Neural Radiance Fields with Light Transport Occlusions (Hybrid event) by Prof Wan Renjie

Neural Radiance Fields (NeRF), a framework for Novel View Synthesis, has emerged as a crucial tool in a broad range of applications, including 3D rendering, robotic perception, and AIGC. It has gained popularity due to its capacity to meticulously render every detail of 3D scenes from 2D images, making it a sought-after representation for different medias in the forthcoming era. However, NeRF's training methodologies pose a challenge due to the difficulty in integrating external priors, which may lead to unwanted occlusions in the rendered outputs. 

In this talk, Prof Wan Renjie from the Hong Kong Baptist University will share the results from his exploration of NeRF alongside Light Transport Occlusions. Prof Wan will conclude the talk by showcasing an assortment of application instances related to 3D scene editing that were established his research findings.
