2020 arXiv   pre-print
We propose Multi-Modal Gaussian Shape Descriptor (MMGSD), a new visual representation of deformable objects which extends ideas from dense object descriptors to predict all symmetric correspondences between  ...  We explore learning pixelwise correspondences between images of deformable objects in different configurations.  ...  Fig. 1 : 1 Multi-Modal Gaussian Shape Descriptors (MMGSD) Fig. 2 : 2 Fig. 2: We visualize the multi-modal ground truth distributions (B) and predicted (A,C) correspondences on domain-randomized images  ...
