Using NNs (usually implicit style it seems?) to make graphics.

1 Gaussian splatting

2 Neural Radiance fields

What is a radiance field? Try Nathan Reed’s introduction, The Radiance Field. Cool, it looks like it is a way of representing a 3d scene as a function of 3d coordinates that can be conveniently represented for rendering, so an SDF+rendering thing somehow?

OK, how does THAT get neural?
