To address the UDA problem for point clouds, we propose a novel learnable self-supervised task that helps the adapted neural network extract transferable features. Specifically, we propose a learnable point cloud transformation and use it in a point cloud destruction-reconstruction self-supervised auxiliary task. We train the main task network and the auxiliary task network, which share an encoder, so that the encoder extracts feature that are highly transferable to the target domain. We further propose a multi-region transformation strategy to make the network focus on local features, which are more transferable. New state-of-the-art performance is achieved on the point cloud classification and segmentation UDA benchmarks.
