Robust one-shot 3D scanning using loopy belief propagation

Ulusoy, A., Calakli, F., Taubin, G.

In Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition Workshops (CVPRW), 2010 IEEE Computer Society Conference on, pages: 15-22, IEEE, 2010 (inproceedings)

Abstract
A structured-light technique can greatly simplify the problem of shape recovery from images. There are currently two main research challenges in design of such techniques. One is handling complicated scenes involving texture, occlusions, shadows, sharp discontinuities, and in some cases even dynamic change; and the other is speeding up the acquisition process by requiring small number of images and computationally less demanding algorithms. This paper presents a “one-shot” variant of such techniques to tackle the aforementioned challenges. It works by projecting a static grid pattern onto the scene and identifying the correspondence between grid stripes and the camera image. The correspondence problem is formulated using a novel graphical model and solved efficiently using loopy belief propagation. Unlike prior approaches, the proposed approach uses non-deterministic geometric constraints, thereby can handle spurious connections of stripe images. The effectiveness of the proposed approach is verified on a variety of complicated real scenes.

Epione: An Innovative Pain Management System Using Facial Expression Analysis, Biofeedback and Augmented Reality-Based Distraction

Georgoulis, S., Eleftheriadis, S., Tzionas, D., Vrenas, K., Petrantonakis, P., Hadjileontiadis, L. J.

In Proceedings of the 2010 International Conference on Intelligent Networking and Collaborative Systems, pages: 259-266, INCOS ’10, IEEE Computer Society, Washington, DC, USA, 2010 (inproceedings)

Abstract
An innovative pain management system, namely Epione, is presented here. Epione deals with three main types of pain, i.e., acute pain, chronic pain, and phantom limb pain. In particular, by using facial expression analysis, Epione forms a dynamic pain meter, which then triggers biofeedback and augmented reality-based destruction scenarios, in an effort to maximize patient's pain relief. This unique combination sets Epione not only a novel pain management approach, but also a means that provides an understanding and integration of the needs of the whole community involved i.e., patients and physicians, in a joint attempt to facilitate easing of their suffering, provide efficient monitoring and contribute to a better quality of life.

Phantom Limb Pain Management Using Facial Expression Analysis, Biofeedback and Augmented Reality Interfacing

In Proceedings of the 3rd International Conferenceon Software Development for EnhancingAccessibility and Fighting Info-Exclusion, pages: 23-30, DSAI ’10, UTAD - Universidade de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, 2010 (inproceedings)

Abstract
Post-amputation sensation often translates to the feeling of severe pain in the missing limb, referred to as phantom limb pain (PLP). A clear and rational treatment regimen is difficult to establish, as long as the underlying pathophysiology is not fully known. In this work, an innovative PLP management system is presented, as a module of an holistic computer-mediated pain management environment, namely Epione. The proposed Epione-PLP scheme is structured upon advanced facial expression analysis, used to form a dynamic pain meter, which, in turn, is used to trigger biofeedback and augmented reality-based PLP distraction scenarios. The latter incorporate a model of the missing limb for its visualization, in an effort to provide to the amputee the feeling of its existence and control, and, thus, maximize his/her PLP relief. The novel Epione-PLP management approach integrates edge-technology within the context of personalized health and it could be used to facilitate easing of PLP patients' suffering, provide efficient progress monitoring and contribute to the increase in their quality of life.

Layered image motion with explicit occlusions, temporal consistency, and depth ordering

Sun, D., Sudderth, E., Black, M. J.

In Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems 23 (NIPS), pages: 2226-2234, MIT Press, 2010 (inproceedings)

Abstract
Layered models are a powerful way of describing natural scenes containing smooth surfaces that may overlap and occlude each other. For image motion estimation, such models have a long history but have not achieved the wide use or accuracy of non-layered methods. We present a new probabilistic model of optical flow in layers that addresses many of the shortcomings of previous approaches. In particular, we define a probabilistic graphical model that explicitly captures: 1) occlusions and disocclusions; 2) depth ordering of the layers; 3) temporal consistency of the layer segmentation. Additionally the optical flow in each layer is modeled by a combination of a parametric model and a smooth deviation based on an MRF with a robust spatial prior; the resulting model allows roughness in layers. Finally, a key contribution is the formulation of the layers using an image dependent hidden field prior based on recent models for static scene segmentation. The method achieves state-of-the-art results on the Middlebury benchmark and produces meaningful scene segmentations as well as detected occlusion regions.

In Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems 16, NIPS, pages: 1539-1546, (Editors: S. Thrun and L. K. Saul and B. Schölkopf), MIT Press, 2003 (inproceedings)

Abstract
The detection and pose estimation of people in images and video is made challenging by the variability of human appearance, the complexity of natural scenes, and the high dimensionality of articulated body models. To cope with these problems we represent the 3D human body as a graphical model in which the relationships between the body parts are represented by conditional probability distributions. We formulate the pose estimation problem as one of probabilistic inference over a graphical model where the random variables correspond to the individual limb parameters (position and orientation). Because the limbs are described by 6-dimensional vectors encoding pose in 3-space, discretization is impractical and the random variables in our model must be continuous-valued. To approximate belief propagation in such a graph we exploit a recently introduced generalization of the particle filter. This framework facilitates the automatic initialization of the body-model from low level cues and is robust to occlusion of body parts and scene clutter.

Abstract
A probabilistic method for tracking 3D articulated human figures in monocular image sequences is presented. Within a Bayesian framework, we define a generative model of image appearance, a robust likelihood function based on image gray level differences, and a prior probability distribution over pose and joint angles that models how humans move. The posterior probability distribution over model parameters is represented using a discrete set of samples and is propagated over time using particle filtering. The approach extends previous work on parameterized optical flow estimation to exploit a complex 3D articulated motion model. It also extends previous work on human motion tracking by including a perspective camera model, by modeling limb self occlusion, and by recovering 3D motion from a monocular sequence. The explicit posterior probability distribution represents ambiguities due to image matching, model singularities, and perspective projection. The method relies only on a frame-to-frame assumption of brightness constancy and hence is able to track people under changing viewpoints, in grayscale image sequences, and with complex unknown backgrounds.
