Diverse Video Generation using a Gaussian Process Trigger. (arXiv:2107.04619v1 [cs.CV])

Generating future frames given a few context (or past) frames is a
challenging task. It requires modeling the temporal coherence of videos and
multi-modality in terms of diversity in the potential future states. Current
variational approaches for video generation tend to marginalize over
multi-modal future outcomes. Instead, we propose to explicitly model the
multi-modality in the future outcomes and leverage it to sample diverse
futures. Our approach, Diverse Video Generator, uses a Gaussian Process (GP) to
learn priors on future states given the past and maintains a probability
distribution over possible futures given a particular sample. In addition, we
leverage the changes in this distribution over time to control the sampling of
diverse future states by estimating the end of ongoing sequences. That is, we
use the variance of GP over the output function space to trigger a change in an
action sequence. We achieve state-of-the-art results on diverse future frame
generation in terms of reconstruction quality and diversity of the generated
