We introduce the SCAPE method (Shape Completion and Animation for PEople)---a data-driven method for building a human shape model that spans variation in both subject shape and pose. The method is based on a representation that incorporates both articulated and non-rigid deformations. We learn a <i>pose deformation model</i> that derives the non-rigid(More)
Multi-class image segmentation has made significant advances in recent years through the combination of local and global features. One important type of global feature is that of inter-class spatial relationships. For example, identifying “tree” pixels indicates that pixels above and to the sides are more likely to be “sky” whereas pixels below are more(More)
We address the problem of detecting complex articulated objects and their pose in 3D range scan data. This task is very difficult when the orientation of the object is unknown, and occlusion and clutter are present in the scene. To address the problem, we design an efficient probabilistic framework, based on the articulated model of an object, which(More)
Utilization of a combined Alcian Blue and Pyronine Y histochemical method for the assessment of multiple parameters in the respiratory tract of various species is described. Acidic mucins were deep blue (sialylated mucins), red (sulfated mucins), or variably purple (mixture of sialylated/sulfated mucins), and differential mucus production was readily(More)
Extracellular slime (Ecs) from three strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis was prepared and added to fresh suspensions of polymorphonuclear neutrophils. Phagocytic ingestion and killing of opsonised and unopsonised S. epidermidis strains was assessed over time using slide preparations stained by the Gram's method and microbiological culture. Both phagocytic(More)
We present a method for detecting the placement of complex articulated models in 3D partial view range images. Specifically, we detect the placement of the parts of an articulated model in a scene. This is a difficult task because the object can be substantially occluded by clutter or portions may not be observed. Our approach uses detectors to provide(More)
