Application: Using vector graphics to create 3d content (Patent ID: US20240104829A1)

The patent filed by Sony Group Corp. describes a method and device for creating 3D content and assets for metaverse applications using deep learning techniques such as vector graphics. The process involves inputting vector graphics representing 2D images into a machine learning model, which then generates 3D assets that are presented in a computer simulation. The system utilizes a vector graphics encoder, deep neural networks like RNN or transformer, and a 3D decoder to generate and compare 3D content, with loss computed between the original and output images to train the vector graphics encoder effectively.

The device and method outlined in the patent involve the input of vector graphics or raster graphics representing 2D images into a machine learning model to generate 3D assets for use in computer simulations. The system can convert 3D representations to 2D images for comparison with the original images, generating loss indications to train the model effectively. Additionally, the patent details the use of recurrent neural networks within the machine learning model for processing the graphics data. Overall, the technology described aims to leverage deep learning techniques to create rich and scalable 3D content for metaverse applications efficiently.
