Abstract: We present Analogical Networks, a model that casts fine-grained 3D visual parsing as analogy-forming inference: instead of mapping input scenes to part labels, which is hard to adapt in a few-shot manner to novel inputs, our model retrieves related scenes from memory and their corresponding part structures, and predicts analogous part structures in the input object 3D point cloud, via an end-to-end learnable modulation mechanism. By conditioning on more than one retrieved memories, compositions of structures are predicted, that mix and match parts across the retrieved memories. One-shot, few-shot or many-shot learning are treated uniformly in Analogical Networks, by conditioning on the appropriate set of memories, whether taken from a single, few or many memory exemplars, and inferring analogous parses. We show Analogical Networks are competitive in many-shot settings and outperform existing state-of-the-art detection transformer models on part segmentation in few-shot scenarios, as well as paradigms of meta-learning and few-shot learning. Our model successfully parses instances of novel object categories simply by expanding its memory, without any weight updates.
