Unsupervised Learning on Monocular Videos for 3D Human Pose Estimation

by   Sina Honari, et al.

In this paper, we introduce an unsupervised feature extraction method that exploits contrastive self-supervised (CSS) learning to extract rich latent vectors from single-view videos. Instead of simply treating the latent features of nearby frames as positive pairs and those of temporally-distant ones as negative pairs as in other CSS approaches, we explicitly separate each latent vector into a time-variant component and a time-invariant one. We then show that applying CSS only to the time-variant features, while also reconstructing the input and encouraging a gradual transition between nearby and away features yields a rich latent space, well-suited for human pose estimation. Our approach outperforms other unsupervised single-view methods and match the performance of multi-view techniques.
