Deep Learning Approach For Simplifying 3D Holographic Displays

Holograms provide a three-dimensional perspective of objects, creating a realistic and immersive experience. They have applications in medical imaging, manufacturing, and virtual reality. However, because of their computationally intensive nature and the requirement for a particular camera, their creation is difficult, and their broad application is limited. Many Deep Learning Approach for producing holograms have been proposed recently. They can generate holograms from 3D data recorded by RGB-D cameras, which gather color and depth information about an item. This method avoids many of the computing issues involved with the traditional method and represents a simpler alternative for creating holograms.

A group of academics has proposed a unique deep learning approach to hologram production that produces 3D images from conventional 2D color photos acquired with common cameras.

Three deep neural networks (DNNs) are employed in the proposed method to transform a conventional 2D color image into data that may be used to display a 3D scene or object as a hologram. The first DNN takes a color image recorded with a conventional camera as input and predicts the related depth map, delivering information about the image’s 3D structure. The second DNN uses the original RGB image and the depth map obtained by the first DNN to generate a hologram. Finally, the third DNN refines the hologram generated by the second DNN so that it may be displayed on various devices.

The researchers discovered that the proposed deep learning approach took less time to process data and make a hologram than a state-of-the-art graphics processing unit. Another notable advantage of the approach is that the finished hologram’s replicated image can represent a natural 3D reproduced image.
