Order-Aware Generative Modeling Using the 3D-Craft Dataset

Research on 2D and 3D generative models typically focuses on the final artifact being created, e.g., an image or a 3D structure. Unlike 2D image generation, the generation of 3D objects in the real world is commonly constrained by the process…

Quasi-Hyperbolic Momentum and Adam for Deep Learning

Momentum-based acceleration of stochastic gradient descent (SGD) is widely used in deep learning. We propose the quasi-hyperbolic momentum algorithm (QHM) as an extremely simple alteration of momentum SGD, averaging a plain SGD step with a…
