Context-Based Appearance Descriptor for 3D Human Pose Estimation from Monocular Images
In this paper we propose a novel appearance descriptor for 3D human pose estimation from monocular images using a learning-based technique. Our image-descriptor is based on the int...

Multi-projective Parameter Estimation for Sets of Homogeneous Matrices
A number of problems in computer vision require the estimation of a set of matrices, each of which is defined only up to an individual scale factor and represents the parameters of...

SIFTing the Relevant from the Irrelevant: Automatically Detecting Objects in Training Images
Many state-of-the-art object recognition systems rely on identifying the location of objects in images, in order to better learn its visual attributes. In this paper, we propose fo...
