GQN builds upon a large literature of recent related work in multi-view geometry, generative modelling, unsupervised learning and predictive learning, which we discuss here, in the Science paper and the Open Access version. It illustrates a novel way to learn compact, grounded representations of physical scenes. Crucially, the proposed approach does not require domain-specific engineering or…
