1️⃣ Researchers from ByteDance and CMU Introduce AvatarVerse: A Novel AI Pipeline for Generating High-Quality 3D Avatars Controlled by both Text Descriptions and Pose Guidance [Paper] [Blog]

Researchers from ByteDance and CMU suggest AvatarVerse, a unique framework made for producing high-quality and reliable 3D avatars using textual descriptions and position guidances, to address these limitations. They initially train a brand-new ControlNet using 800K or more human DensePose pictures. Then, on top of the ControlNet, SDS loss conditional on the 2D DensePose signal is implemented. They can achieve exact view correspondence between every 2D view and the 3D space and between many 2D views. Their technology does away with the Janus problem that plagues the majority of previous approaches while also enabling pose control of the created avatars. As a result, it guarantees a more reliable and consistent generation procedure for avatars. The produced avatars may also be well aligned with the joints of the SMPL model thanks to the precise and adaptable supervision signals offered by DensePose, making skeletal binding and control easy and efficient.

3️⃣ A New AI Research from China Introduces RecycleGPT: A Generative Language Model with a Fast Decoding Speed of 1.4x by Recycling Pre-Generated Model States without Running the Whole Model in Multiple Steps [Paper] [Blog]

A new study by the National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi and Tsinghua University investigates efficient decoding techniques to maximize token generation while keeping the memory processing budget constant. To achieve rapid decoding, they introduce a new language model architecture called RecycleGPT, which can reuse previously created model states.

Their strategy involves tweaking the original language model by incorporating a new recyclable module that predicts the next few tokens based on previously generated states without repeatedly running the complete model. The recyclable module is built from several transformer-based layers, which together allow for better representations to be made when making predictions. RecycleGPT can be combined with the conventional decoding technique in several different ways for usage during inference. This study employs them cyclically (i.e., producing every two tokens involves running the whole model once), leaving the investigation of other ways for future research. The purpose of the recyclable module was to speed up the decoding process, and it was able to do this because, despite its simplistic architecture, the module could efficiently represent contextual information and generate correct predictions.
