Spherical CNNs

Equivariant CNNs for the sphere and SO(3) implemented in PyTorch



This library contains a PyTorch implementation of the rotation equivariant CNNs for spherical signals (e.g. omnidirectional images, signals on the globe) as presented in [1]. Equivariant networks for the plane are available here.


(commands to install all the dependencies on a new conda environment)

conda create --name cuda9 python=3.6 
conda activate cuda9

# s2cnn deps
#conda install pytorch torchvision cuda90 -c pytorch # get correct command line at http://pytorch.org/
conda install -c anaconda cupy  
pip install pynvrtc  

# lie_learn deps
conda install -c anaconda cython  
conda install -c anaconda requests  

# shrec17 example dep
conda install -c anaconda scipy  
conda install -c conda-forge rtree shapely  
conda install -c conda-forge pyembree  
pip install "trimesh[easy]"  


To install, run

$ python setup.py install


Please have a look at the examples.
