We open this new season of Papers We Love Barcelona with a really hot topic: Computer vision.
We count with an expert in the topic: Carlos Andujar from the Universtat Politecnica de Catalunya. Carlos will discuss the paper DensePose: Dense Human Pose Estimation In The Wild from INRIA and Facebook AI Research. The paper can be download [here](http://openaccess.thecvf.com/content_cvpr_2018/papers/Guler_DensePose_Dense_Human_CVPR_2018_paper.pdf) although there is no need to know anything about the topic before the talk.
Talk: DensePose: Dense Human Pose Estimation In The Wild
Dense human pose estimation is defined in this paper like the correspondences between an RGB image and a surface-based representation of the human body. Carlos will explain and discuss the last tecniques in this area like CNN-Based systems and fully-convunational networks from the point of view of a researcher in Graphics.
Supplementary materials, data, code, and videos from the paper are provided on the project page http://densepose.org
