Principled fusion of high-level model and low-level cues for motion segmentation
High-level generative models provide elegant descriptions of videos and are commonly used as the inference framework in many unsupervised motion segmentation schemes. However, approximate inference in these models often require ad-hoc initialization to avoid local minima issues. Low-level cues, obtained independently from the highlevel model, can constrain the search space and reduce the chance of inference algorithms falling into a local minima. This paper introduces a novel principled fusion framework where, local hierarchical superpixels segmentation of images are used to capture local motion. The low-level cues such as local motion, on their own, not adequate to obtain full motion segmentation as occlusion needs to be handled globally. We fuse the low-level motion cues with the highlevel model in a principled manner to surmount the shortcomings of using only the high-level model or low-level cues to perform motion segmentation. The fused model contains both continuous and discrete...
