Creatures great and SMAL: Recovering the shape and motion of animals from video [article]

Benjamin Biggs, Thomas Roddick, Andrew Fitzgibbon, Roberto Cipolla
2018 arXiv   pre-print
We present a system to recover the 3D shape and motion of a wide variety of quadrupeds from video.  ...  The system is tested on animal videos from several species, and shows accurate reconstructions of 3D shape and pose.  ...  to yield detailed shape and pose for each frame of the video.  ...

Who Left the Dogs Out? 3D Animal Reconstruction with Expectation Maximization in the Loop [article]

Benjamin Biggs, Oliver Boyne, James Charles, Andrew Fitzgibbon, Roberto Cipolla
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We introduce an automatic, end-to-end method for recovering the 3D pose and shape of dogs from monocular internet images.  ...  The large variation in shape between dog breeds, significant occlusion and low quality of internet images makes this a challenging problem.  ...  Creatures Great and SMAL (CGAS) [5] is a three-stage method, which employs a joint predictor on silhouette renderings from synthetic 3D dogs, applies a genetic algorithm to clean predictions, and finally  ...

The mindsweeper tales : a creative and critical approach to reinventing the medieval framed story-collection as a modern novel

Natalie I. Cawthorne
