ML&AI Meetup November Hack-Night!


Playing with Pose-Detection

Previously there have been a lot of skeletons overlaid on top of video at the office, but with Andy Gelme’s recent creation of office data-topics and the publication of pose data, it’s easier than ever to hook in and create something a little more interesting. Here you can see pose information being consumed by an Elm application written by Noon to render skeletons with Obama’s head. (What do you mean ‘Why?’)

What are some fun ideas for how this tech could be used?

  • Saving prep and processing-time for animation motion-capture
  • Gait analysis / Pose-ID
  • Game input / Simon-Says style games
  • Crowd mood detection
  • Scene construction
  • Image warping
  • South-Park style cartoon creator / photo-shopping by moving
  • Robotic control! (Dancing?)


Deep Learning Workshop FAQ's

What are the outcomes for the learner?

  • Experience building neural networks in TensorFlow
  • Clear understanding of convolutions and representation learning
  • Experimenting with a model that learns representations of words
  • Practical real-world model development in TensorFlow
