Building LEGO using Deep Generative Models of Graphs

Rylee Thompson · Graham Taylor · Terrance DeVries · Elahe Ghalebi


Generative models are now used to create a variety of high-quality digital artifacts. Yet their use in designing physical objects has received far less attention. In this paper, we argue for the building toy LEGO as a platform for developing generative models of sequential assembly. We develop a generative model based on graph-structured neural networks that can learn from human-built structures and produce visually compelling designs.
