In an all-new SIGGRAPH Now, rediscover the SIGGRAPH 2019 Frontiers Talk “How Computer Graphics Expertise Will Further the State of the Art in Machine Learning”. The session focuses on the success of deep learning in solving many problems that had long defied solution. As such, machine learning has become an essential tool in many disciplines — something that is evidenced by recent increases in the amount of papers that use related tools at SIGGRAPH. Martin Wicke (Google) discusses knowledge transfer in the opposite direction: What insights can experts in computer graphics bring to the field of machine learning? How can knowledge about geometry, rendering, simulation, or perception be used to further the state of the art in machine learning? Catch the full session below!
