I am working skeletonisation. In preprocessing, I have to find the human mask from the RGB images by using cnn or any other machine learning techniques. I want to extract only person area. C:\fakepath\Unbenannt.PNGThe mask should be sharper. It will be great , if you suggest any documentation or techniques. (I tried K means clustering, superpixel grouping , gradient techniques but unable to extract accurate mask. )

o_o that is actually quite accurately. Maybe you can have a look at how OpenPose framework solves the issue?

just curious, what is used for the skeleton here ?

Hi Steven...Thanks for reply. I already checked , they are directly finding the human joints. Here first, I want to find the human silhouette or mask from the image. Then, I will operate on this mask.

Hi Berak..I am using the RGB as well as depth data for the estimation of the joints but the depth data is not accurate.

Is there any reason why you want to do it differently than the current state-of-the-art open frameworks?

Hi Steven, I want to use different approaches :). Also, I am using superpixels with mean value to reduce the computational power.
