From what I see, the terminology used in the paper is slightly incorrect. What MED means is Median Euclidean Distance. What AED means is Average Euclidean Distance.

Euclidean distance is calculated by the formula in the following link

MED is calculated by taking median of all the euclidean distances between the actual and predicted points
