Fitting models to images

In this video Marcel Lüthi discusses the connection of shape model fitting and segmentation.

As the final step in our exploration of shape models, we show in this video how we can fit a shape model to an image.

We will discuss the segmentation problem and how a successful model fit can be seen as a solution to this problem. Starting from the Iterative Closest Point (ICP) algorithm, we derive a fitting method, which is similar to the famous Active Shape Model (ASM) fitting algorithm.
