Articulated pose estimation is one of the fundamental challenges in computer vision. Progress in this area can immediately be applied to important vision tasks such as human tracking action recognition and video analysis. This talk will discuss papers and progress of computer vision and deep learning towards human pose estimation and its applications.
Some papers that we can discuss here:
Insafutdinov, E., Pishchulin, L., Andres, B., Andriluka, M., and Schiele, B. Deepercut: A deeper, stronger, and faster multi-person pose estimation model. CoRR abs/[masked] (2016).
Realtime Multi-Person 2D Pose Estimation using Part Affinity Fields, Zhe Cao and Tomas Simon and Shih-En Wei and Yaser Sheikh CVPR 2017
I will lead the discussion and would encourage everyone else to think about applications and future research/ development ideas in this domain.
