I am a Ph.D. student at the Visual Computing & Artificial Intelligence lab. Previously, I worked as a researcher at the Vision, Learning and Telepresence lab at Samsung AI Center Moscow with the focus on 3D deep learning, differentiable rendering, point cloud processing and human telepresence. My previous degrees were obtained from Skolkovo University of Science and Technology (M.Sc.) and Lomonosov Moscow State University (B.Sc.), both in machine learning and computer science. I have also worked in medical imaging during the last years of my B.Sc. and in the industry. My current research is related to face recognition, active learning, and neural rendering. Homepage

TriPlaneNet: An Encoder for EG3D Inversion
Ananta Bhattarai, Matthias Nießner, Artem Sevastopolsky
WACV 2024
EG3D is a powerful {z, camera}->image generative model, but inverting EG3D (finding a corresponding z for a given image) is not always trivial. We propose a fully-convolutional encoder for EG3D based on the observation that predicting both z code and tri-planes is beneficial. TriPlaneNet also works for videos and close to real time.

How to Boost Face Recognition with StyleGAN?
Artem Sevastopolsky, Yury Malkov, Nikita Durasov, Luisa Verdoliva, Matthias Nießner
ICCV 2023
State-of-the-art face recognition systems require huge amounts of labeled training data which is often compiled as a limited collection of celebrities images. We learn how to leverage pretraining of StyleGAN and an encoder for it on large-scale collections of random face images. The procedure can be applied to various backbones and is the most helpful on limited data. We release the collected datasets AfricanFaceSet-5M and AsianFaceSet-3M and a new fairness-concerned testing benchmark RB-WebFace.

Neural point-based graphics
Kara-Ali Aliev, Artem Sevastopolsky, Maria Kolos, Dmitry Ulyanov, Victor Lempitsky
ECCV 2020
Given RGB(D) images and a point cloud reconstruction of a scene, our neural network generates extreme novel views of the scene which look highly photoreal.

Coordinate-based Texture Inpainting for Pose-Guided Image Generation
Artur Grigorev, Artem Sevastopolsky, Alexander Vakhitov, Victor Lempitsky
CVPR 2019
How would I look in a different pose? Or in different clothes? A ConvNet with coordinate-based texture inpainting to the rescue.
