Motion Layers and Image Parsing

Research Overview

There exists a theoretical gap between model-based tracking of complex objects and early motion estimation, namely, the selection and initialization of models. It seems clear that some form of early analysis should help one select and initialize models, but this remains a largely unexplored topic. Allan Jepson, Michael Black and I have been working on methods for extracting effective representations of visual motion that provide an efficient characterization of the principal moving components of a scene and their relative depths. In future research we hope to use this representation to infer the occurrence of plausible models for subsequent model selection and refinement.
