Abstract: The segmentation of people in RGB images poses a key obstacle in the field of computer vision. In our thesis, we tackle this issue through hand-crafted features in a two-stage pipeline, targeting both binary and multiple body part segmentation. For our purposes, we employ tools such as AdaBoost, support vector machines, Haar-like features, histograms of oriented gradients and graphics. We also address the differences between cascade learning and stacked learning. Finally, we analyse a multimodal approach to combining different tasks, which allows us to improve and refine our predictions concerning the segmentation of body parts using 2D and 3D estimations of posture and depth, a feat made possible thanks to deep learning.
