In this talk, I will give an overview of recent work that explores how to endow computational systems with the ability to connect natural language and 3D representations. I will talk about a project that develops a unified model for localizing objects in 3D scenes and describing them using natural language. Then, I will quickly summarize other recent work that explores different tasks requiring connections between natural language and 3D representations.

This talk is part of a joint session with Manolis Savva, hosted by 3DL.
