Abstract : We propose a multi-region two-stream R-CNN model for action detection in realistic videos. We start from frame-level action detection based on faster R-CNN [1], and make three contributions: (1) we show that a motion region proposal network generates high-quality proposals , which are complementary to those of an appearance region proposal network; (2) we show that stacking optical flow over several frames significantly improves frame-level action detection; and (3) we embed a multi-region scheme in the faster R-CNN model, which adds complementary information on body parts. We then link frame-level detections with the Viterbi algorithm, and temporally localize an action with the maximum subarray method. Experimental results on the UCF-Sports, J-HMDB and UCF101 action detection datasets show that our approach outperforms the state of the art with a significant margin in both frame-mAP and video-mAP.
