In this talk, I will introduce two of our recent works at CVPR 2023. Both of them are about dataset. The first is MVImgNet (https://gaplab.cuhk.edu.cn/projects/MVImgNet/) which targets to contribute a foundation dataset for 3D vision tasks, including 3D reconstruction, 3D understanding and also 3D-aware image recognition. The second is Rabit (https://gaplab.cuhk.edu.cn/projects/RaBit/), which contributes a dataset of 3D biped cartoon characters. It contains 1,500 textured meshes, where all models are manually guaranteed topological-consistent. Based on this dataset, we also built a SMPL-like parametric method to model pose and shape and a StyleGAN-based method to model texture variance. The success of ChatGPT tells us the importance of big data and big model, I believe the era of 3D big data is coming.
