facebook released a new method to detect multiple bodies in a video. Some poeple already made their own attempts on github to do the same, and the algorithm will detect human movements and infer a skeleton out of it (you may have seen it, th eone with different colored limbs). What is the best pipeline to use this algorithm to extract movements from people in videos and place their sksletons into say anime figures in a video rendering software so the figure can follow the pose extracted form the human?

just asking for which software / language is best for this. i already know the theory, just need the practicalities of it (mostly model rigging and video stuff)

trying to make a hatsune miku x donald trump dance video but too lazy to rig it myself so i want to use AI for that.

You'd need a way to convert from the automatically-inferred skeleton to the target skeleton. I'm not sure which software would be best for this, but most of the skeletal rigging code I've seen was in a C-like language (C++, Java, C#, etc.) and used in videogames.

Your best bet is python imho

  • You have tensorflow, the status quo on deep learning neural network.
Most probably any existing pose estimation networks you'd find on github will be done in tensorflow.
  • You can use python scripting in blender.
Although it uses it's own interpreter installation and it's not straightforward to use it in an outside application the things you can do in regards to animation and scripting in blender are second to none.
  • Makehuman
An application written in python to create humanoid meshes. It has the usual sliders to change the model attributes. You might try to get your network to come up with the sliders for a similar mesh based on an input video.

The advantage of this approach: You can at any point edit anything by hand and go beyond scripting.
The disadvantage: Many components and you pretty much have to at least adapt an existing tensorflow model.

That said:

>too lazy to rig it myself so i want to use AI for that.
At current time there is no ready to use end user application that can do this.
And writing such application yourself is certainly more work that animating by hand.

I disagree, at least in an ideological sense.
I think it's disturbing that the law still regards video as hard, tamper-proof evidence. This should have been fixed in the early 00s not now when it's becoming a trivial exercise in terms of labor.
And if you find that scary see what can be done in conjunction with statistics.

I'm using the site PracticePython.org to learn some python and one of the challenges is list overlap comprehension. My solution seems WAY different than what they have but it also seems to be working which seems, wrong. Would one of you kind people mind having a look and telling me if this is ferkakt? Here's a picture of my Jack Russel Terrier as a show of my gratitude.

import random

al = random.randint(5, 25)
bl = random.randint(5, 25)
a = random.sample(range(100), al)
b = random.sample(range(100), bl)
c = []

if len(a) > len(b):
c = [i for i in a if i in b and not c]
if len(b) > len(a):
c = [i for i in b if i in a and not c]

Here's the challenge itself if that helps you understand what I was trying to do with it: (https://www.practicepython.org/solution/2014/04/16/10-list-overlap-comprehensions-solutions.html)

This week’s exercise is going to be revisiting an old exercise (see Exercise 5), except require the solution in a different way.

Take two lists, say for example these two:

a = [1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89]
b = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13]

and write a program that returns a list that contains only the elements that are common between the lists (without duplicates). Make sure your program works on two lists of different sizes. Write this using at least one list comprehension. (Hint: Remember list comprehensions from Exercise 7).


Randomly generate two lists to test this

  1. Stop using bullshit variable names. Is c common? Then call it common. Names matter.
  2. It doesn't matter which list is longer or which list you iterate over. If you were trying to optimize, all you did was waste time and create a bug.
  3. List comprehensions are always introduced as being the same thing as a list appending loop, but it isn't true. You can't reference the resulting list from within the comprehension so what you're trying to do will never work. To get unique items, either make the input or output unique.
  4. Randomly generating lists and manually checking the result is a bad joke. Instead, organize code into small functions and write test cases:

def make_common_list(a, b):
common = [i for i in a if i in b]
return make_unique_list(common)

def make_unique_list(seq):
unique_list = []
for i in seq:
if i not in unique_list:
return unique_list

Firstly, thinks for responding and giving advice. I appreciate it immensely.

Let me address each of your comments individually to give and get clarification.

  1. The list names are used from the exercise given. Also, I didn't think they would matter much because they aren't being used in any real world code. Just as an exercise to learn how things work. I get that if I were building something that would be used for anything other than completing this coding exercise naming the lists something useful would be important. I have a little tiny bit of knowledge of JavaScript and have dicked around with creating things in it and I know to always make sure an array has a useful name so that I know what data it's storing.

2. Ok. I was thinking that because the lists weren't sorted in my code (Remember they're generated randomly) that I would always want to check the longer one against the shorter one so it wouldn't get to the end of the short one and stop. That wasn't made clear in the source material I was reading that it wouldn't be a problem. In fact, they made it seem like it would be a problem if one was longer than the other and you didn't do something for it.

3. I'm not completely sure I understand but IF I do, you're saying that I cannot check against the list I'm creating inside of the list comprehension? That makes sense sort of and working around that is definitely something I'll keep in mind. TBH: I kind of like using the for loops more than list comprehension. The whole things feels like voodoo to me and the for loops make more sense in my head.

4. I see. Randomly generating and then testing it is dumb because who knows what kind of results you'll get if they're random. I should have started with known lists, made sure it works and then generated them randomly.

It sounds like you have an API key. If that's the case, you'll need code server side to access the API and render HTML for a user to view. You can use PHP for that. You shouldn't be dealing with SQL unless you have some responsibility for the operation of the database.

It also sounds like you're way over your head. Maybe step back and look at how other people are doing the kind of things you're trying to do.

Actually, you can do Javascript on the server. A lot of web developers today use Javascript for almost everything. I don't think it's an especially good idea, but there's no denying that it's wildly popular.

Let me just mention.

Most big companies I know programmers in are writing high performance/availability applications in Java, C++, or Golang depending on the domain. Some are still using PHP. My own company (one of the top 20 "internet companies" according to Wikipedia) is using Java and Golang for writing new high performance backend services. For new frontend services which talk to the backend ones we're using Node.js for server-side and React.js for client-side. Our old frontend stuff is in PHP.

So my thought here is that Java is a good choice of first language. It's sort of middle of the road so you could go from Java to Golang/C++ or JS/Python/Ruby/Kotlin pretty easily.
Although if you know you want to do less performance intensive web apps (this would cover almost all web apps actually) you could start with something like Node.js or Ruby on rails.

And just a personal thought - if you're just getting started writing programs it might be good to learn HTML+javascript. Just because I think it would be more fun for most people if they could learn by writing applications that have a visible component (in this case a web page you can interact with).

When you tell gcc to build your program (which is basically what you did with your command to gcc), it first compiles the code files (*.c files and *.cpp files) you give it into object files (*.o or *.obj files). It then tries to link all of the generated object files into a running program. In order to do this last step, gcc needs some help, so it invokes ld to perform the linking step. In your case, OP, ld ran into an error and tried to tell you an error message.

Also your C code has some oddities to it that while they may not be causing any immediate problems, they might cause confusion if you show this code to anyone else:
  • Your printf() string starts with \n . \n is the character that when printed will cause a newline to be generated. Usually you want this at the end of your string so that your program prints a line and then moves the cursor down to the next line.
  • Your return value is wrapped in parenthesis. Try doing "return 0;" instead. The parenthesis you have surrounded the return value with should have no effect (other than making the code harder to read).

Hey everyone. So this is the long and the short of it.
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a computer programmer, work with computers, do really geeky stuff with technology. I remember at 12 getting a cracked version of Macromedia Flash and teaching myself how to animate, and also trying to teach myself HTML and CSS. Well, my piece of shy father has been in prison since I was 7 and my mom had five kids, so I really didn't exactly get to pursue my dreams while my mom lost her house, and all of us kids had to get jobs and go stay with friends or family members because she couldn't afford to house us and support us all through school, and I was kind of a bad kid and a slacker and got kicked out of school, so I never even considered a scholarship was kind of out of the equation .
I still want to go to school and get a job sitting on my computer all day doing nerdy interweb stuff, where should I get an education? How can I get help paying for it? I want to be a success story and not the bitter shell of an abandoned son who gave up on his creative dreams and ended up as a cook making $10 dollars an hour.

Im 25 and want to get an education and become a computer programmer or work in cyber security or something. I would like some recommendations as to where to go and how to get financial assistance.

OP, internships are hard to come by. I live in NYC and with 2 years education and loads years of freelance exp, I have yet to find one myself.

People who have connections seem to always suggest it, which is kinda unfair.

Anyways, for learning purposes, community colleges offer pretty good associates' in Programming and/or computer science.

If you're like me and hate math, a computer science degree is probably not the best to chase, but programming or telecom or information systems management paths would be adequate.

I just wanted to say, if you're low income (which it sounds like) you should consider going to college because federal grants will cover most, if not all, of the tuition price.
This may vary state to state (I assume you are in the USA), but for my first bachelor's I did not pay a dime because I was considered low income as well.
Keep in mind the assistance is not forever. Where I live I believe the max is seven years of assistance or until you get your first bachelor's. With that said, you should try to finish community college as quickly as possible, so you can transfer to a four year university and not worry about the aid running out.
Good luck and it is possible!

I just read the tl;dr where you ask about getting the assistance. Most schools have a financial aid office where you can get more information to apply. Ask lots of questions because any worker you interact with is going to want to do the minimum amount of work and send you on your way ASAP, whether or not your issues have been addressed. This applies to academic counselors as well. You are your own best advocate, remember that.

Apply to four year universities in your state. In-state tuition is a huge cost saver for most people. Join the one with the best Computer Science or Computer Engineering department that accepts you. Go to their finical aid office. They will help you with grants and loans.

If you graduate with CS or CE degree the loans will be worth it as long as you keep it under a hundred grand.

I have a question.
I've done something similar to the example on this page.

What they've got there is a virtual class that's called Shape. And then a load of derived classes called things like Rectangle and Circle etc.

Then the go
Rectangle rectangle = new Rectangle();

What I can't see is a way to declare a variable of type Shape. I don't care if that winds up a Rectangle or Circle because they both will implement the interface. How can I do the following?

Shape shape = methodThatWillGiveMeRectOrCircle();

My compiler can't compile that method. It says:

You have to use pointers.

cout << "Totalarea: " << shape->getArea() << endl;

From what I understand, an int* can't just be assigned to a char* or void* without being explicitly cast so why is this different?

That's just how polymorphism in C++ works.

A Rectangle IS A Shape so it can always be safely cast implicitly.
While a Shape may not necessarily be a Rectangle so it has to be explicitly cast.

You might be able to use references here too, but if that works then it's only because references are just pointers with nice syntax under the hood.
