Identify the edges in the field of view and then correlate the sequence of frames to infer the configuration of the rubiks cube. The audience will be able to take away as to how one can correlate information from video frames to infer the kinematics of the object in the field of view


Describe an algorithm to infer the edges in a video followed by building a probabilistic graphical model to identify the color, and position of the rubiks cube.
