Efficient Human Pose Estimation from Single Depth Images
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
By Jamie Shotton,Ross Girshick,Andrew Fitzgibbon,Toby Sharp,Mat Cook,Mark Finocchio,Richard Moore,Pushmeet Kohli,Antonio Criminisi,Alex Kipman,Andrew Blake
Issue Date:December 2013
pp. 2821-2840
We describe two new approaches to human pose estimation. Both can quickly and accurately predict the 3D positions of body joints from a single depth image without using any temporal information. The key to both approaches is the use of a large, realistic, ...
Decision tree fields
Found in: Computer Vision, IEEE International Conference on
By Sebastian Nowozin,Carsten Rother,Shai Bagon,Toby Sharp, Bangpeng Yao,Pushmeet Kohli
Issue Date:November 2011
pp. 1668-1675
This paper introduces a new formulation for discrete image labeling tasks, the Decision Tree Field (DTF), that combines and generalizes random forests and conditional random fields (CRF) which have been widely used in computer vision. In a typical CRF mode...
Bayesian color constancy revisited
Found in: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, IEEE Computer Society Conference on
By Peter Vincent Gehler, Carsten Rother, Andrew Blake, Tom Minka, Toby Sharp
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 1-8
Computational color constancy is the task of estimating the true reflectances of visible surfaces in an image. In this paper we follow a line of research that assumes uniform illumination of a scene, and that the principal step in estimating reflectances i...
High resolution matting via interactive trimap segmentation
Found in: Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, IEEE Computer Society Conference on
By Christoph Rhemann, Carsten Rother, Alex Rav-Acha, Toby Sharp
Issue Date:June 2008
pp. 1-8
We present a new approach to the matting problem which splits the task into two steps: interactive trimap extraction followed by trimap-based alpha matting. By doing so we gain considerably in terms of speed and quality and are able to deal with high resol...
Real-time human pose recognition in parts from single depth images
Found in: Communications of the ACM
By Alex Kipman, Andrew Blake, Andrew Fitzgibbon, Jamie Shotton, Mark Finocchio, Mat Cook, Richard Moore, Toby Sharp
Issue Date:January 2013
pp. 116-124
We propose a new method to quickly and accurately predict human pose---the 3D positions of body joints---from a single depth image, without depending on information from preceding frames. Our approach is strongly rooted in current object recognition strate...
Geodesic image and video editing
Found in: ACM Transactions on Graphics (TOG)
By Antonio Criminisi, Carsten Rother, Patrick P'erez, Toby Sharp
Issue Date:October 2010
pp. 1-15
This article presents a new, unified technique to perform general edge-sensitive editing operations on n-dimensional images and videos efficiently. The first contribution of the article is the introduction of a Generalized Geodesic Distance Transform (GGDT...
