The Pose Knows: Video Forecasting by Generating Pose Futures [article]

Jacob Walker, Kenneth Marino, Abhinav Gupta, Martial Hebert
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We then use the future poses generated as conditional information to a GAN to predict the future frames of the video in pixel space.  ...  By using the structured space of pose as an intermediate representation, we sidestep the problems that GANs have in generating video pixels directly.  ...  Acknowledgements: We thank the NVIDIA Corporation for the donation of GPUs for this research. In addition, this work was supported by NSF grant IIS1227495.  ...
