Cross-Level Cross-Scale Cross-Attention Network for Point Cloud Representation

04/27/2021 ∙ by Xian-Feng Han, et al. ∙ 0

Self-attention mechanism recently achieves impressive advancement in Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Image Processing domains. And its permutation invariance property makes it ideally suitable for point cloud processing. Inspired by this remarkable success, we propose an end-to-end architecture, dubbed Cross-Level Cross-Scale Cross-Attention Network (CLCSCANet), for point cloud representation learning. First, a point-wise feature pyramid module is introduced to hierarchically extract features from different scales or resolutions. Then a cross-level cross-attention is designed to model long-range inter-level and intra-level dependencies. Finally, we develop a cross-scale cross-attention module to capture interactions between-and-within scales for representation enhancement. Compared with state-of-the-art approaches, our network can obtain competitive performance on challenging 3D object classification, point cloud segmentation tasks via comprehensive experimental evaluation.
