In this episode of the Talking Papers Podcast, I hosted Yael Vinker. We had a great chat about her paper "CLIPasso: SEmantically-Aware Object Sketching”, SIGGRAPH 2022 best paper award winner.

In this paper, they convert images into sketches with different levels of abstraction. They avoid the need for sketch datasets by using the well-known CLIP model to distil the semantic concepts from sketches and images. There is no network training here, just optimizing the control points of Bezier curves to model the sketch strokes (initialized by a saliency map). How is this differentiable? They use a differentiable rasterizer. The degree of abstraction is controlled by the number of strokes. Don't miss the amazing demo they created.

Yael is currently a PhD student at Tel Aviv University. Her research focus is on computer vision, machine learning, and computer graphics with a unique twist of combining art and technology. This work was done as part of her internship at EPFL

ABSTRACT

Abstraction is at the heart of sketching due to the simple and minimal nature of line drawings. Abstraction entails identifying the essential visual properties of an object or scene, which requires semantic understanding and prior knowledge of high-level concepts. Abstract depictions are therefore challenging for artists, and even more so for machines. We present an object sketching method that can achieve different levels of abstraction, guided by geometric and semantic simplifications. While sketch generation methods often rely on explicit sketch datasets for training, we utilize the remarkable ability of CLIP (Contrastive-Language-Image-Pretraining) to distil semantic concepts from sketches and images alike. We define a sketch as a set of Bézier curves and use a differentiable rasterizer to optimize the parameters of the curves directly with respect to a CLIP-based perceptual loss. The abstraction degree is controlled by varying the number of strokes. The generated sketches demonstrate multiple levels of abstraction while maintaining recognizability, underlying structure, and essential visual components of the subject drawn.
