Real-time Human Detection in Computer Vision — Part 2

Modern approaches for Human Detection

Human Detection using “Faster RCN Inception V2 COCO” model available with Tensorflow Object Detection API. Test Video from “Coarse Gaze Estimation in Visual Surveillance Project” by University of Oxford

They are “Deep Convolution Neural Networks”

They are “Multi-class Object Detectors”
