This community call will feature a presentation from @jonmatthis on The FreeMoCap Project, a free open source markerless motion capture system for decentralized science, education, and art. The presentation will be followed by community updates and announcements from the GOSH Community Council.

More on the FreeMoCap Project:

The FreeMoCap system leverages cutting edge machine learning (ML) driven markerless motion capture (mocap) software (e.g. MediaPipe, DeepLabCut, etc) to create a easy-to-use pipeline for tracking full-body 3d movements of humans, animals, or other objects. In addition to providing low-cost mocap solutions for scientific and clinical research, this system also allows independent animators and video game designers to create motion capture assets at a fraction of the price of traditional mocap. This combination of ML-based software, scientific research, and artistic expression also creates a unique educational opportunity, as this system will provide an in-road for engaging in self-directed, ‘inside-out’ exploration of the constituent technologies and related scientific and artistic disciplines. The eventual goal is to create a system that will allow a 14-year-old with no technical training and no outside assistance to recreate a research-grade mocap system for less than $100US.
