Generation query network lets computer create multi-view 3-D model from 2-D photographs

A team of researchers working with Google's DeepMind division in London has developed what they describe as a Generation Query Network (GQN)—it allows a computer to create a 3-D model of a scene from 2-D photographs that can be viewed from different angles. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes the new type of neural network system and what it represents. They also offer a more personal take on their project in a post on their website. Matthias Zwicker, with the University of Maryland offers a Perspective on the work done by the team in the same journal issue.
