Though a number of point cloud learning methods have been proposed to handle unordered points, most of them are supervised and require labels for training.

… propose a simple yet effective approach for unsupervised point cloud learning.

… identify a very useful transformation which generates a good contrastive version of an original point cloud.

… After going through a shared encoder and a shared head network, the consistency between the output representations are maximized with introducing two variants of contrastive losses to respectively facilitate downstream classification and segmentation.

… conduct experiments on three downstream tasks which are 3D object classification (on ModelNet40 and ModelNet10), shape part segmentation (on ShapeNet Part dataset) as well as scene segmentation (on S3DIS).

… unsupervised contrastive representation learning … in object classification and semantic segmentation … generally outperforms current unsupervised methods, and even achieves comparable performance to supervised methods …
