## Course Description

This is an advanced seminar course focusing on recent developements in the field of Neural Rendering. Neural Rendering can be loosely defined as a technique where classical rendering pipelines (ray-tracing, volumetric rendering, image-based rendering etc.) are augmented with neural networks. We will first review basics of computer graphics and deep neural networks. This course is then divided into 2 sections. (a) In the first part, we will focus on 2D image-based neural rendering. (b) In the second part, we will discuss advances in 3D volumetric rendering via Neural Radiance Fields (NeRFs).
