Everybody Is Unique: Towards Unbiased Human Mesh Recovery

  title={Everybody Is Unique: Towards Unbiased Human Mesh Recovery},
  author={Ren Li and Meng Zheng and Srikrishna Karanam and Terrence Chen and Ziyan Wu},
We consider the problem of obese human mesh recovery, i.e., fitting a parametric human mesh to images of obese people. Despite obese person mesh fitting being an important problem with numerous applications (e.g., healthcare), much recent progress in mesh recovery has been restricted to images of non-obese people. In this work, we identify this crucial gap in the current literature by presenting and discussing limitations of existing algorithms. Next, we present a simple baseline to address… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


Appearance Consensus Driven Self-Supervised Human Mesh Recovery
A self-supervised human mesh recovery framework to infer human pose and shape from monocular images in the absence of any paired supervision, establishing the superior generalizability of this framework. Expand
Convolutional Mesh Regression for Single-Image Human Shape Reconstruction
This paper addresses the problem of 3D human pose and shape estimation from a single image by proposing a graph-based mesh regression, which outperform the comparable baselines relying on model parameter regression, and achieves state-of-the-art results among model-based pose estimation approaches. Expand
End-to-End Recovery of Human Shape and Pose
This work introduces an adversary trained to tell whether human body shape and pose parameters are real or not using a large database of 3D human meshes, and produces a richer and more useful mesh representation that is parameterized by shape and 3D joint angles. Expand
TexturePose: Supervising Human Mesh Estimation With Texture Consistency
This work proposes a natural form of supervision, that capitalizes on the appearance constancy of a person among different frames (or viewpoints) and achieves state-of-the-art results among model-based pose estimation approaches in different benchmarks. Expand
Learning to Estimate 3D Human Pose and Shape from a Single Color Image
This work addresses the problem of estimating the full body 3D human pose and shape from a single color image and proposes an efficient and effective direct prediction method based on ConvNets, incorporating a parametric statistical body shape model (SMPL) within an end-to-end framework. Expand
Learning to Reconstruct 3D Human Pose and Shape via Model-Fitting in the Loop
The core of the proposed approach SPIN (SMPL oPtimization IN the loop) is that the two paradigms can form a strong collaboration, and better network estimates can lead the optimization to better solutions, while more accurate optimization fits provide better supervision for the network. Expand
Exploiting Temporal Context for 3D Human Pose Estimation in the Wild
A bundle-adjustment-based algorithm for recovering accurate 3D human pose and meshes from monocular videos and shows that retraining a single-frame 3D pose estimator on this data improves accuracy on both real-world and mocap data by evaluating on the 3DPW and HumanEVA datasets. Expand
Keep It SMPL: Automatic Estimation of 3D Human Pose and Shape from a Single Image
The first method to automatically estimate the 3D pose of the human body as well as its 3D shape from a single unconstrained image is described, showing superior pose accuracy with respect to the state of the art. Expand
Learning effective human pose estimation from inaccurate annotation
A significant increase in pose estimation accuracy is demonstrated, while simultaneously reducing computational expense by a factor of 10, and a dataset of10,000 highly articulated poses is contributed. Expand
Synthetic Training for Accurate 3D Human Pose and Shape Estimation in the Wild
STRAPS (Synthetic Training for Real Accurate Pose and Shape), a system that utilises proxy representations, such as silhouettes and 2D joints, as inputs to a shape and pose regression neural network, which is trained with synthetic training data (generated on-the-fly during training using the SMPL statistical body model) to overcome data scarcity.
