Introduction to Media pipe: An easy ML solution for complex problems developed by Google

Bhavishya Pandit (~bhavishya59)


Description:

Keypoint detection is more like a keystone of the bridge, it might carry lesser weight as compared to other stones but the entire bridge depends on it. Keypoint detection can be understood as a very important computer vision task in which with the help of advanced deep learning algorithms, keypoint are identified and detected.
The best part about this domain of computer vision is its acceptance to open source and its ease to understand the code. Understanding its importance and the wide scope Google developed a library, Mediapipe, which is easy to understand and implement the concept of keypoint detection.

Examples of Keypoint detection:

  1. Pose Estimation
  2. Hand Keypoint detection
  3. Facial feature detection etc.

Applications of Keypoint Detection:

  1. Pose Recognition
  2. Gesture Recognition
  3. Motion Tracking
