    A Causal And-Or Graph Model for Visibility Fluent Reasoning in Tracking Interacting Objects

    Tracking humans that are interacting with the other subjects or environment remains unsolved in visual tracking, because the visibility of the human of interests in videos is unknown and might vary over time. In particular, it is still difficult for state-of-the-art human trackers to recover complete human trajectories in crowded scenes with frequent human interactions. In this work, we consider the visibility status of a subject as a fluent variable, whose change is mostly attributed to the subject's interaction with the surrounding, e.g., crossing behind another object, entering a building, or getting into a vehicle, etc. We introduce a Causal And-Or Graph (C-AOG) to represent the causal-effect relations between an object's visibility fluent and its activities, and develop a probabilistic graph model to jointly reason the visibility fluent change (e.g., from visible to invisible) and track humans in videos. We formulate this joint task as an iterative search of a feasible causal graph structure that enables fast search algorithm, e.g., dynamic programming method. We apply the proposed method on challenging video sequences to evaluate its capabilities of estimating visibility fluent changes of subjects and tracking subjects of interests over time. Results with comparisons demonstrate that our method outperforms the alternative trackers and can recover complete trajectories of humans in complicated scenarios with frequent human interactions.Comment: accepted by CVPR 201

    VIVE3D: Viewpoint-Independent Video Editing using 3D-Aware GANs

    Full text link
    We introduce VIVE3D, a novel approach that extends the capabilities of image-based 3D GANs to video editing and is able to represent the input video in an identity-preserving and temporally consistent way. We propose two new building blocks. First, we introduce a novel GAN inversion technique specifically tailored to 3D GANs by jointly embedding multiple frames and optimizing for the camera parameters. Second, besides traditional semantic face edits (e.g. for age and expression), we are the first to demonstrate edits that show novel views of the head enabled by the inherent properties of 3D GANs and our optical flow-guided compositing technique to combine the head with the background video. Our experiments demonstrate that VIVE3D generates high-fidelity face edits at consistent quality from a range of camera viewpoints which are composited with the original video in a temporally and spatially consistent manner.Comment: CVPR 2023.

    In fact, due to the existence of this category of equations, our understanding of many phenomena around us becomes more complete. In this paper, we study an integrable partial differential equation called the Kadomtsev–Petviashvili equation with a local conformable derivative. This equation is used to describe nonlinear motion. In order to solve the equation, it is first necessary to convert the form of the equation from a partial derivative to an equation with ordinary derivatives using a suitable variable change. The resulting form will then be the basis of our work to determine the main solutions. All the solutions reported in the paper for the present equation are quite different from the previous findings in other papers. All necessary calculations are provided using symbolic computing software in Maple

    Snipper: A Spatiotemporal Transformer for Simultaneous Multi-Person 3D Pose Estimation Tracking and Forecasting on a Video Snippet

    Full text link
    Multi-person pose understanding from RGB videos involves three complex tasks: pose estimation, tracking and motion forecasting. Intuitively, accurate multi-person pose estimation facilitates robust tracking, and robust tracking builds crucial history for correct motion forecasting. Most existing works either focus on a single task or employ multi-stage approaches to solving multiple tasks separately, which tends to make sub-optimal decision at each stage and also fail to exploit correlations among the three tasks. In this paper, we propose Snipper, a unified framework to perform multi-person 3D pose estimation, tracking, and motion forecasting simultaneously in a single stage. We propose an efficient yet powerful deformable attention mechanism to aggregate spatiotemporal information from the video snippet. Building upon this deformable attention, a video transformer is learned to encode the spatiotemporal features from the multi-frame snippet and to decode informative pose features for multi-person pose queries. Finally, these pose queries are regressed to predict multi-person pose trajectories and future motions in a single shot. In the experiments, we show the effectiveness of Snipper on three challenging public datasets where our generic model rivals specialized state-of-art baselines for pose estimation, tracking, and forecasting
