M. Ersin Yumer, N. J. Mitra. Learning Semantic Deformation Flows with 3D Convolutional Networks. ECCV, 2016.

Yumer and Mitra use 3D convolutional neural networks to predict semantic shape deformations. In particular, they consider shoes, cars, chairs and airplanes and deformations such as "comfy" for shoes or "sporty" for cars. The used network architecture corresponds to an encoder decoder scheme as illustrated in Figure 1. Results are shown in Figure 2.
