Filling the Joints: Completion and Recovery of Incomplete 3D Human Poses†
AbstractWe present a comparative study of three matrix completion and recovery techniques based on matrix inversion, gradient descent, and Lagrange multipliers, applied to the problem of human pose estimation. 3D human pose estimation algorithms may exhibit noise or may completely fail to provide estimates for some joints. A post-process is often employed to recover the missing joints’ locations from the remaining ones, typically by enforcing kinematic constraints or by using a prior learned from a database of natural poses. Matrix completion and recovery techniques fall into the latter category and operate by filling-in missing entries of a matrix whose available/non-missing entries may be additionally corrupted by noise. We compare the performance of three such techniques in terms of the estimation error of their output as well as their runtime, in a series of simulated and real-world experiments. We conclude by recommending use cases for each of the compared techniques. View Full-Text
