How Powerful Are Randomly Initialized Pointcloud Set Functions? [article]

Aditya Sanghi, Pradeep Kumar Jayaraman
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We study random embeddings produced by untrained neural set functions, and show that they are powerful representations which well capture the input features for downstream tasks such as classification, and are often linearly separable. We obtain surprising results that show that random set functions can often obtain close to or even better accuracy than fully trained models. We investigate factors that affect the representative power of such embeddings quantitatively and qualitatively.

Group-disentangled Representation Learning with Weakly-Supervised Regularization [article]

Linh Tran, Amir Hosein Khasahmadi, Aditya Sanghi, Saeid Asgari
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Learning interpretable and human-controllable representations that uncover factors of variation in data remains an ongoing key challenge in representation learning. We investigate learning group-disentangled representations for groups of factors with weak supervision. Existing techniques to address this challenge merely constrain the approximate posterior by averaging over observations of a shared group. As a result, observations with a common set of variations are encoded to distinct latent

In contrast to previous works, we propose GroupVAE, a simple yet effective Kullback-Leibler (KL) divergence-based regularization across shared latent representations to enforce consistent and disentangled representations. We conduct a thorough evaluation and demonstrate that our GroupVAE significantly improves group disentanglement. Further, we demonstrate that learning group-disentangled representations improve upon downstream tasks, including fair classification and 3D shape-related tasks such as reconstruction, classification, and transfer learning, and is competitive to supervised methods.

Jigsaw-VAE: Towards Balancing Features in Variational Autoencoders [article]

Saeid Asgari Taghanaki, Mohammad Havaei, Alex Lamb, Aditya Sanghi, Ara Danielyan, Tonya Custis
2020 arXiv   pre-print
The latent variables learned by VAEs have seen considerable interest as an unsupervised way of extracting features, which can then be used for downstream tasks. There is a growing interest in the question of whether features learned on one environment will generalize across different environments. We demonstrate here that VAE latent variables often focus on some factors of variation at the expense of others - in this case we refer to the features as "imbalanced". Feature imbalance leads to poor

Similarly, latent variables trained with imbalanced features induce the VAE to generate less diverse (i.e. biased towards dominant features) samples. To address this, we propose a regularization scheme for VAEs, which we show substantially addresses the feature imbalance problem. We also introduce a simple metric to measure the balance of features in generated images.

CAPRI-Net: Learning Compact CAD Shapes with Adaptive Primitive Assembly [article]

Fenggen Yu, Zhiqin Chen, Manyi Li, Aditya Sanghi, Hooman Shayani, Ali Mahdavi-Amiri, Hao Zhang
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce CAPRI-Net, a neural network for learning compact and interpretable implicit representations of 3D computer-aided design (CAD) models, in the form of adaptive primitive assemblies. Our network takes an input 3D shape that can be provided as a point cloud or voxel grids, and reconstructs it by a compact assembly of quadric surface primitives via constructive solid geometry (CSG) operations. The network is self-supervised with a reconstruction loss, leading to faithful 3D

While the parametric nature of CAD models does make them more predictable locally, at the shape level, there is a great deal of structural and topological variations, which present a significant generalizability challenge to state-of-the-art neural models for 3D shapes. Our network addresses this challenge by adaptive training with respect to each test shape, with which we fine-tune the network that was pre-trained on a model collection. We evaluate our learning framework on both ShapeNet and ABC, the largest and most diverse CAD dataset to date, in terms of reconstruction quality, shape edges, compactness, and interpretability, to demonstrate superiority over current alternatives suitable for neural CAD reconstruction.

Detecting Fake Drugs using Blockchain

Abhinav Sanghi*, Aayush ., Ashutosh Katakwar, Anshul Arora, Aditya Kaushik
2021 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
The existing supply chain for the pharmaceutical industry is obsolete and lacks clear visibility over the entire system. Moreover, the circulation of counterfeit drugs in the market has increased over the years. According to the WHO report, around 10.5% of the medicinal drugs in lower / middle income countries are fake and such drugs may pose serious threats to public health, sometimes leading to death. Keeping these threats in mind, in this paper, we propose a blockchainbased model to track

The reasons for using blockchain technology in our work include its immutability property and easy tracking of an entity in the blockchain. Through this proposed model, the manufacturer would be able to upload the details corresponding to a drug, after which it will be sent for approval to the Government. Thereafter, hospitals and pharmacies, based upon their requirements, can request the approved drugs. In the future, if a patient wants some medication, then he or she has to request it on the blockchain network. The request will be sent to the nearest hospital/pharmacy and thereafter, the patient can collect the medication. To implement this model, we have used Hyperledger fabric due to the presence of many autoimplemented features in it. Our implementation of the proposed blockchain based model highlights that the model can successfully detect any drug being counterfeit. This will be beneficial for the users getting affected with counterfeit drugs. Moreover, with the proposed model, we can also track the movement of the drug beginning from the manufacturer right up to the patient consuming that drug.

UV-Net: Learning from Boundary Representations [article]

Pradeep Kumar Jayaraman, Aditya Sanghi, Joseph G. Lambourne, Karl D.D. Willis, Thomas Davies, Hooman Shayani, Nigel Morris
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce UV-Net, a novel neural network architecture and representation designed to operate directly on Boundary representation (B-rep) data from 3D CAD models. The B-rep format is widely used in the design, simulation and manufacturing industries to enable sophisticated and precise CAD modeling operations. However, B-rep data presents some unique challenges when used with modern machine learning due to the complexity of the data structure and its support for both continuous non-Euclidean

In this paper, we propose a unified representation for B-rep data that exploits the U and V parameter domain of curves and surfaces to model geometry, and an adjacency graph to explicitly model topology. This leads to a unique and efficient network architecture, UV-Net, that couples image and graph convolutional neural networks in a compute and memory-efficient manner. To aid in future research we present a synthetic labelled B-rep dataset, SolidLetters, derived from human designed fonts with variations in both geometry and topology. Finally we demonstrate that UV-Net can generalize to supervised and unsupervised tasks on five datasets, while outperforming alternate 3D shape representations such as point clouds, voxels, and meshes.

In the neighborhood of each coedge, a small collection of faces, edges and coedges can be identified and patterns in the feature vectors from these entities detected by specific learnable parameters. In addition, to encourage further deep learning research with B-reps, we publish the Fusion 360 Gallery segmentation dataset. A collection of over 35,000 B-rep models annotated with information about the modeling operations which created each face. We demonstrate that BRepNet can segment these models with higher accuracy than methods working on meshes, and point clouds.

Info3D: Representation Learning on 3D Objects using Mutual Information Maximization and Contrastive Learning [article]

Aditya Sanghi
2020 arXiv   pre-print
A major endeavor of computer vision is to represent, understand and extract structure from 3D data. Towards this goal, unsupervised learning is a powerful and necessary tool. Most current unsupervised methods for 3D shape analysis use datasets that are aligned, require objects to be reconstructed and suffer from deteriorated performance on downstream tasks. To solve these issues, we propose to extend the InfoMax and contrastive learning principles on 3D shapes. We show that we can maximize the

Furthermore, we can achieve rotation invariance in SO(3) group by maximizing the mutual information between the 3D objects and their geometric transformed versions. Finally, we conduct several experiments such as clustering, transfer learning, shape retrieval, and achieve state of art results.

CLIP-Forge: Towards Zero-Shot Text-to-Shape Generation [article]

Aditya Sanghi and Hang Chu and Joseph G. Lambourne and Ye Wang and Chin-Yi Cheng and Marco Fumero and Kamal Rahimi Malekshan
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Generating shapes using natural language can enable new ways of imagining and creating the things around us. While significant recent progress has been made in text-to-image generation, text-to-shape generation remains a challenging problem due to the unavailability of paired text and shape data at a large scale. We present a simple yet effective method for zero-shot text-to-shape generation that circumvents such data scarcity. Our proposed method, named CLIP-Forge, is based on a two-stage

Our method has the benefits of avoiding expensive inference time optimization, as well as the ability to generate multiple shapes for a given text. We not only demonstrate promising zero-shot generalization of the CLIP-Forge model qualitatively and quantitatively, but also provide extensive comparative evaluations to better understand its behavior.

CAD designers build up these assemblies by aligning individual parts to one another using constraints called joints.

UVStyle-Net: Unsupervised Few-shot Learning of 3D Style Similarity Measure for B-Reps [article]

Peter Meltzer, Hooman Shayani, Amir Khasahmadi, Pradeep Kumar Jayaraman, Aditya Sanghi, Joseph Lambourne
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Boundary Representations (B-Reps) are the industry standard in 3D Computer Aided Design/Manufacturing (CAD/CAM) and industrial design due to their fidelity in representing stylistic details. However, they have been ignored in the 3D style research. Existing 3D style metrics typically operate on meshes or pointclouds, and fail to account for end-user subjectivity by adopting fixed definitions of style, either through crowd-sourcing for style labels or hand-crafted features. We propose
more » ... , a style similarity measure for B-Reps that leverages the style signals in the second order statistics of the activations in a pre-trained (unsupervised) 3D encoder, and learns their relative importance to a subjective end-user through few-shot learning. Our approach differs from all existing data-driven 3D style methods since it may be used in completely unsupervised settings, which is desirable given the lack of publicly available labelled B-Rep datasets. More importantly, the few-shot learning accounts for the inherent subjectivity associated with style. We show quantitatively that our proposed method with B-Reps is able to capture stronger style signals than alternative methods on meshes and pointclouds despite its significantly greater computational efficiency. We also show it is able to generate meaningful style gradients with respect to the input shape, and that few-shot learning with as few as two positive examples selected by an end-user is sufficient to significantly improve the style measure. Finally, we demonstrate its efficacy on a large unlabeled public dataset of CAD models. Source code and data will be released in the future.

UNIST: Unpaired Neural Implicit Shape Translation Network [article]

Qimin Chen, Johannes Merz, Aditya Sanghi, Hooman Shayani, Ali Mahdavi-Amiri, Hao Zhang
We introduce UNIST, the first deep neural implicit model for general-purpose, unpaired shape-to-shape translation, in both 2D and 3D domains. Our model is built on autoencoding implicit fields, rather than point clouds which represents the state of the art. Furthermore, our translation network is trained to perform the task over a latent grid representation which combines the merits of both latent-space processing and position awareness, to not only enable drastic shape transforms but also well

With the same network architecture and only dictated by the input domain pairs, our model can learn both style-preserving content alteration and content-preserving style transfer. We demonstrate the generality and quality of the translation results, and compare them to well-known baselines.
