Deep lens optimization has recently emerged as a new paradigm for designing computational imaging systems, however it has been limited to either simple optical systems consisting of a single DOE or metalens, or the fine-tuning of compound lenses from good initial designs. Here we present a deep lens design method based on curriculum learning, which is able to learn optical designs of compound lenses ab initio from randomly initialized surfaces, therefore overcoming the need for a good initial design. We demonstrate this approach with the fully-automatic design of an extended depth-of-field computational camera in a cellphone-style form factor, highly aspherical surfaces, and a short back focal length.
