Paper Abstract

A method for automated 2D human body description (stick figure) based on segmentation is described. Segmentation is based on contrast, motion, and knowledge of body structure. The human body (upper part), segmented into 6 parts, is represented by an adjacency graph. The regions assigned to each part are modeled as a Markov random field (MRF) on the graph, and the body part detection problem is then formulated as a maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimation. In addition, an algorithm for generating stick figures without excessive computation is proposed.
