SVMA: A GAN-based model for Monocular 3D Human Pose Estimation

Recovering 3D human pose from 2D joints is a highly unconstrained problem, especially without any video or multi-view information. We present an unsupervised GAN-based model to recover 3D human pose from 2D joint locations extracted from a single image. Our model uses a GAN to learn the mapping of distribution from 2D poses to 3D poses, not the simple 2D-3D correspondence. Considering the reprojection constraint, our model can estimate the camera so that we can reproject the estimated 3D pose to the original 2D pose. Based on this reprojection method, we can rotate and reproject the generated pose to get our "new" 2D pose and then use a weight sharing generator to estimate the "new" 3D pose and a "new" camera. Through the above estimation process, we can define the single-view-multi-angle consistency loss during training to simulate multi-view consistency, which means the 3D poses and cameras estimated from two angles of a single view should be able to be mixed to generate rich 2D reprojections, and the 2D reprojections reprojected from the same 3D pose should be consistent. The experimental results on Human3.6M show that our method outperforms all the state-of-the-art methods, and results on MPI-INF-3DHP show that our method outperforms state-of-the-art by approximately 15.0%.
