How to make steady progress in my research? I worked so damn hard but "IT JUST DOESN'T WORK!"😤 How can I unblock myself quickly and make good progress toward the goals? Below I compiled a list of tips that I found useful. 👇

Other highlights including two new datasets including the new Habitat-Matterport3D scan dataset of 1000 brand new scenes and a CAD-ified version of a subset of the Replica dataset:
.@facebookai and @Matterport are collaborating to release the largest-ever public dataset of 3D indoor spaces. Habitat-Matterport 3D dataset contains 1,000 high-res 3D scans of residential & commercial buildings. Use HM3D with @ai_habitat to train embodied agents at scale.

When you generate images with VQGAN + CLIP, the image quality dramatically improves if you add "unreal engine" to your prompt. People are now calling this "unreal engine trick" lol e.g. "the angel of air. unreal engine"

Yikes at the word "mastering" in the title. I hope this ages better than "Attention is All You Need."

Wow, these FID results really improve over GANsformer. Can't wait for the code to train it.
Dual Contrastive Loss and Attention for GANs pdf: arxiv.org/pdf/2103.16748.pdf abs: arxiv.org/abs/2103.16748 "By combining the strengths of these remedies, we improve the compelling state-of-the-art Frechet Inception Distance (FID) by at least 17.5% on several benchmark datasets."

Isn’t this technically copyright infringement under the strictest interpretation?
BREAKING! Stanford scientists have analysed the Moderna and BioNTech vaccines to determine the mRNA code in there. This is the first time we are seeing the Moderna sequence. Get it here while it is still online: github.com/NAalytics/Assembl…
