Understanding object motions and transformations is a core problem in computer science. Modeling sequences of evolving images may provide better representations and models of motion and may ultimately be used for forecasting or simulation. Diagrammatic Abstract Reasoning is an avenue in which diagrams evolve in complex patterns and one needs to infer the underlying pattern sequence and generate the next image in the sequence. For this, we develop a novel Contextual Generative Adversarial Network based on Recurrent Neural Networks (Context-RNN-GANs), where both the generator and the discriminator modules are based on contextual history and the adversarial discriminator guides the generator to produce realistic images for the particular time step in the image sequence. We employ the Context-RNN-GAN model (and its variants) on a novel dataset of Diagrammatic Abstract Reasoning as well as perform initial evaluations on a next-frame prediction task of videos. Empirically, we show that our Context-RNN-GAN model performs competitively with 10th-grade human performance but there is still scope for interesting improvements as compared to college-grade human performance.
