An exclusive look at a new Google AI paper

I usually don’t post Two Minute Papers episodes here, but this time it is different. This work is as fresh as it gets because this is the first time I have been given an exclusive look before the paper came out, and this means that this video and the paper itself were published at the same time. I hope you will enjoy it just as much as I did!

Accelerating Eulerian Fluid Simulation With Convolutional Networks

Jonathan Tompson from Google and his colleagues, Kristofer Schlachter, Pablo Sprechmann and Ken Perlin from the New York University have come up with a really nice technique to teach a convolutional neural network how fluid and smoke simulations work. The project webpage is available here, or you can click on the image below to access the paper.

Status: in progress or under review

Surface-Only Liquids

Fang Da and his colleagues published an absolutely amazing paper on fluid simulations. Make sure to have a look, it is available here (or click on the paper below). I helped a bit with setting up the rendering pipeline and the scenes properly.

Status: accepted to ACM SIGGRAPH 2016
