Dense 3D Face Decoding Over 2500FPS: Joint Texture and Shape Convolutional Mesh Decoders. Y Zhou, Ji Deng, I Kotsia, S Zafeiriou.

Date: June 2019. Source: 2019 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), Long Beach, CA, USA. Abstract: 3D Morphable Models (3DMMs) are statistical models that represent facial texture and shape variations using a set of linear bases and more particular Principal Component Analysis (PCA). 3DMMs were used as statistical priors for reconstructing 3D…

Expressive Body Capture: 3D Hands, Face, and Body from a Single Image. G Pavlakos, V Choutas, N Ghorbani, T Bolkart, AA Osman, D Tzionas, MJ Black.

Date: June 2019. Source: 2019 IEEE/CVF Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR), Long Beach, CA, USA. Proceedings Page(s): 10967-10977. Abstract: To facilitate the analysis of human actions, interactions and emotions, we compute a 3D model of human body pose, hand pose, and facial expression from a single monocular image. To achieve this, we…

3DFaceGAN: Adversarial Nets for 3D Face Representation, Generation, and Translation. S Moschoglou, S Ploumpis, MA Nicolaou et al.

Date: May 2019. Source: International Journal of Computer Vision (2020). https://doi.org/10.1007/s11263-020-01329-8. Abstract: Over the past few years, Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) have garnered increased interest among researchers in Computer Vision, with applications including, but not limited to, image generation, translation, imputation, and super-resolution. Nevertheless, no GAN-based method has been proposed in the literature that can…

MeshMonk: Open-source large-scale intensive 3D phenotyping. JD White, A Ortega-Castrillón, H Matthews et al.

Date: April 2019. Source: Scientific Reports 9, 6085. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-42533-y. Abstract: Dense surface registration, commonly used in computer science, could aid the biological sciences in accurate and comprehensive quantification of biological phenotypes. However, few toolboxes exist that are openly available, non-expert friendly, and validated in a way relevant to biologists. Here, we report a customizable toolbox…

AMASS: Archive of Motion Capture as Surface Shapes. N Mahmood , N Ghorbani, NF Troje, G Pons-Moll, MJ Black.

Date: April 2019. Source: Cornell University Library – arXiv.org, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. Abstract: Large datasets are the cornerstone of recent advances in computer vision using deep learning. In contrast, existing human motion capture (mocap) datasets are small and the motions limited, hampering progress on learning models of human motion. While there are many…

MeshGAN: Non-linear 3D Morphable Models of Faces. S Cheng, M Bronstein, Y Zhou, I Kotsia, M Pantic, S Zafeiriou.

Date: April 2019. Source: Cornell University Library – arXiv.org, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. Abstract: Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) are currently the method of choice for generating visual data. Certain GAN architectures and training methods have demonstrated exceptional performance in generating realistic synthetic images (in particular, of human faces). However, for 3D object, GANs still…

Potential of 3D Surface Imaging for Quantitative Analysis of Fat Grafting. MK Markey, F Merchant, GP Reece et al.

Presenter: Mia K Markey Session: Technical Session 3: 3D Face & Body Scanning in Medicine Abstract: Autologous fat grafting is increasingly employed to address volume asymmetry and contour irregularity following breast reconstruction for breast cancer. However, there are no well-established…

Effect of surrogate design on the measured stiffness of snowboarding wrist protectors. C Adams, D James, T Senior, T Allen, N Hamilton.

Date: September 2018. Source: Sports Engineering, Volume 21, Issue 3, pp 217–225. Abstract: In snowboarding, the wrist is the most common injury site, as snowboarders often put their arms out to cushion a fall. This can result in a compressive load through the carpals coupled with wrist hyperextension, leading to ligament sprains or carpal and…

DeepWrinkles: Accurate and Realistic Clothing Modeling. Zorah Lähner, Daniel Cremers, Tony Tung.

Date: September 2018. Source: 15th European Conference on Computer Vision (ECCV), Munich, Germany. Abstract: We present a novel method to generate accurate and realistic clothing deformation from real data capture. Previous methods for realistic cloth modeling mainly rely on intensive computation of physics-based simulation (with numerous heuristic parameters), while models reconstructed from visual observations typically…
