    Wow. This video is crazy. GANs generate photorealistic driving videos.



    [1808.06601] Video-to-Video Synthesis

    Not sure if this is even useful to self-driving car development— maybe for simulation and offline training?

    New paper on 3D object detection using a monocular camera. Abstract:

    “3D object detection from monocular images has proven to be an enormously challenging task, with the performance of leading systems not yet achieving even 10% of that of LiDAR-based counterparts. One explanation for this performance gap is that existing systems are entirely at the mercy of the perspective image-based representation, in which the appearance and scale of objects varies drastically with depth and meaningful distances are difficult to infer. In this work we argue that the ability to reason about the world in 3D is an essential element of the 3D object detection task. To this end, we introduce the orthographic feature transform, which enables us to escape the image domain by map- ping image-based features into an orthographic 3D space. This allows us to reason holistically about the spatial con- figuration of the scene in a domain where scale is consistent and distances between objects are meaningful. We apply this transformation as part of an end-to-end deep learn- ing architecture and achieve state-of-the-art performance on the KITTI 3D object benchmark.”

    Is it only me that have problems with those videos that speed up everything to make them look more capable then what they actually are? Makes my head hurts.

    Agreed, like the one in here:

    Exactly. Anyone could put out impressive edited "demo" videos. These don't mean anything. No?
