Nvidia Instant NeRF: A Tool that Turns 2D Snapshots into a 3D-Rendered Scene

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Nvidia’s AI model is pretty impressive: a tool that quickly turns 2D snapshots into a 3D-rendered scene. The tool is called Nvidia Instant NeRF, referring to “neural radiance fields”.


Nvidia’s AI model is pretty impressive: a tool that quickly turns a collection of 2D snapshots into a 3D-rendered scene. The tool is called Instant NeRF, referring to “neural radiance fields”.

Known as inverse rendering, the process uses AI to approximate how light behaves in the real world, enabling researchers to reconstruct a 3D scene from a handful of 2D images taken at different angles. The Nvidia research team has developed an approach that accomplishes this task almost instantly making it one of the first models of its kind to combine ultra-fast neural network training and rapid rendering.

NeRFs use neural networks to represent and render realistic 3D scenes based on an input collection of 2D images.
