Andrea Tagliasacchi: Double-blind is great, so why cannot #arXiv add an "anonymous till published" mode? The authors could then be revealed only once the paper is full peer-reviewed (or after a cutoff date), and you could still cite them, thanks via

Daisuke Okanohara: NASA is the first neural implicit rig and can represent the shape of articulated objects. Each part is represented by an implicit function with a position and parameters being transformed by the pose. The whole is represented by their union (max op.).
