We present Ego-Exo4D, a diverse, large-scale multimodal multiview video dataset and benchmark challenge. Ego-Exo4D centers around simultaneously-captured egocentric and exocentric video of skilled human activities (e.g., sports, music, dance, bike repair). More than 800 participants from 13 cities worldwide performed these activities in 131 different natural scene contexts, yielding long-form captures from 1 to 42 minutes each and 1,422 hours of video combined. The multimodal nature of the dataset is unprecedented: the video is accompanied by multichannel audio, eye gaze, 3D point clouds, camera poses, IMU, and multiple paired language descriptions -- including a novel "expert commentary" done by coaches and teachers and tailored to the skilled-activity domain. To push the frontier of first-person video understanding of skilled human activity, we also present a suite of benchmark tasks and their annotations, including fine-grained activity understanding, proficiency estimation, cross-view translation, and 3D hand/body pose. All resources will be open sourced to fuel new research in the community.
We present EgoCOL, an egocentric camera pose estimation method for open-world 3D object localization. Our method leverages sparse camera pose reconstructions in a two-fold manner, video and scan independently, to estimate the camera pose of egocentric frames in 3D renders with high recall and precision. We extensively evaluate our method on the Visual Query (VQ) 3D object localization Ego4D benchmark. EgoCOL can estimate 62% and 59% more camera poses than the Ego4D baseline in the Ego4D Visual Queries 3D Localization challenge at CVPR 2023 in the val and test sets, respectively. Our code is publicly available at https://github.com/BCV-Uniandes/EgoCOL
Mixed reality applications require tracking the user's full-body motion to enable an immersive experience. However, typical head-mounted devices can only track head and hand movements, leading to a limited reconstruction of full-body motion due to variability in lower body configurations. We propose BoDiffusion -- a generative diffusion model for motion synthesis to tackle this under-constrained reconstruction problem. We present a time and space conditioning scheme that allows BoDiffusion to leverage sparse tracking inputs while generating smooth and realistic full-body motion sequences. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first approach that uses the reverse diffusion process to model full-body tracking as a conditional sequence generation task. We conduct experiments on the large-scale motion-capture dataset AMASS and show that our approach outperforms the state-of-the-art approaches by a significant margin in terms of full-body motion realism and joint reconstruction error.
We implemented Video Swin Transformer as a base architecture for the tasks of Point-of-No-Return temporal localization and Object State Change Classification. Our method achieved competitive performance on both challenges.
