TexMesh: Reconstructing Detailed Human Texture and Geometry from RGB-D Video. T Zhi, C Lassner, T Tung, C Stoll, SG Narasimhan, and M Vo.

Date: August 2020. Source: 16th European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV) 2020 Abstract: We present TexMesh, a novel approach to reconstruct detailed human meshes with high-resolution full-body texture from RGBD video. TexMesh enables high quality free-viewpoint rendering of humans. Given the RGB frames, the captured environment map, and the coarse per-frame human mesh from RGB-D…

A preliminary investigation of the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on facial morphology in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. DW Tan, YZ Foo, J Downs, A Finlay-Jones, H Leonard, M Licari, N Mullan, M Symons, KJ Varcin, AJO Whitehouse, GA Alvares.

Date: August 2020. Source:  Alcohol. Volume 86, Pages 75-80. Abstract: Alcohol exposure during pregnancy has been associated with altered brain development and facial dysmorphology. While autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is not specifically related to distinct facial phenotypes, recent studies have suggested certain facial characteristics—increased facial masculinity and asymmetry—may be associated with ASD and its clinical…
