Articulated Pose Estimation and Tracking: Introduction

  • Leonid Sigal

Abstract

This chapter gives a brief introduction to the problem of human pose recovery from images and/or video. In doing so, it provides the overall context for the remaining chapters in this part of the book. It also gives a brief introduction to some of the relevant topics, in this problem domain, that ended up being out of the scope for the book (e.g., geometric models for pose reconstruction and methods that utilize alternative sensor modalities).

Keywords

Activity Recognition Motion Capture Discriminative Model Discriminative Approach Pose Estimation 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
