High Fidelity Video Prediction with Large Stochastic Recurrent Neural Networks

In line with Rich Sutton's 'The Bitter Lesson', the improvement of video prediction performance as model capacity increases leaves an open question about how far we can get by finding the right combination of maximal model capacity and minimal inductive bias.

Contrastive Learning of Structured World Models

Contrastively-trained Structured World Models (C-SWMs) depart from traditional pixel-based reconstruction losses and use an energy-based hinge loss for learning object-centric world models.

Forward Prediction for Physical Reasoning

Demonstrates the potential of forward-prediction for solving PHYRE physical reasoning tasks by investigating various combinations of object and pixel-based forward-prediction and task-solution models.

Hierarchical Relational Inference

Hierarchical Relational Inference (HRI) learns hierarchical object representations and their relations directly from raw visual inputs, but is evaluated against limited baselines on simple datasets

IntPhys 2019: A Benchmark for Visual Intuitive Physics Understanding

IntPhys provides a well-designed benchmark for evaluting a system's understanding of a few core concepts about the physics of objects.
