Shape modelling with Gaussian Processes and kernels

Watch Ghazi Bouabene use Scalismo to create Gaussian Processes from generic kernels and generate shape models.

Let’s turn math into shapes! See what deformation fields result from creating Gaussian Processes with different kernels.

Here we will start by playing on the parameters of a Gaussian kernel and learn how to obtain models yielding smooth deformations. We then move on to crafting and combining kernels to obtain symmetrical and spatially localised deformation fields.

Each tutorial video is followed by a companion document that you will find in the consecutive Scalismo Lab step.
