Surface Reconstruction from Point Clouds: A Survey and a Benchmark

no code implementations5 May 2022 Zhangjin Huang, Yuxin Wen, ZiHao Wang, Jinjuan Ren, Kui Jia

For example, while deep learning methods are increasingly popular, our systematic studies suggest that, surprisingly, a few classical methods perform even better in terms of both robustness and generalization; our studies also suggest that the practical challenges of misalignment of point sets from multi-view scanning, missing of surface points, and point outliers remain unsolved by all the existing surface reconstruction methods.

A Speaker-aware Parallel Hierarchical Attentive Encoder-Decoder Model for Multi-turn Dialogue Generation

no code implementations13 Oct 2021 ZiHao Wang, Ming Jiang, Junli Wang

Differing from prior work that solely relies on the content of conversation history to generate a response, we argue that capturing relative social relations among utterances (i. e., generated by either the same speaker or different persons) benefits the machine capturing fine-grained context information from a conversation history to improve context coherence in the generated response.
