Markus Marks from ETH Zurich contributed this post on a new method for video analysis of multiple animals in complex real-world settings. This is an independently developed approach that handles all aspects of video analysis including segmentation, identification, and...
Multiple Monkey Pose Estimation with OpenPose

Multiple Monkey Pose Estimation with OpenPose

Salvador B. Negrete and colleagues have shared their protocol for utilizing OpenPose for tracking multiple monkey subjects. OpenPose is a deep learning software system which was originally developed for pose estimation in human subjects, now being repurposed and...
