This paper presents an end-to-end neural architecture based on Diffusion Models for spatial puzzle solving, particularly jigsaw puzzle and room arrangement tasks.In the latter task, for instance, the proposed system ``PuzzleFusion'' takes a set of room layouts as polygonal curves in the top-down view and aligns the room layout pieces by estimating their 2D translations and rotations, akin to solving the jigsaw puzzle of room layouts. A surprising discovery of the paper is that the simple use of a Diffusion Model effectively solves these challenging spatial puzzle tasks as a conditional generation process. To enable learning of an end-to-end neural system, the paper introduces new datasets with ground-truth arrangements: 1) 2D Voronoi Jigsaw Dataset, a synthetic one where pieces are generated by voronoi diagram of 2D pointset; and 2) MagicPlan Dataset, a real one from a production pipeline by MagicPlan, where pieces are room layouts constructed by augmented reality App by real-estate consumers.The qualitative and quantitative evaluations demonstrate that the proposed approach outperforms the competing methods by significant margins in all three spatial puzzle tasks.
