We introduce a new architecture using Recurrent Neural Networks (RRNs) to learn approximate solutions to three geometric problems - finding planar convex hulls, computing Delaunay triangulations, and the planar Travelling Salesman Problem - using training examples alone. We hope our results on these tasks will encourage a broader exploration of neural learning for discrete geometric problems, including mesh generation.
