Semi-supervised understanding of complex activities from temporal concepts

Abstract : Methods for action recognition have evolved considerably over the past years and can now automatically learn and recognize short term actions with satisfactory accuracy. Nonetheless, the recognition of complex activities-compositions of actions and scene objects-is still an open problem due to the complex temporal and composite structure of this category of events. Existing methods focus either on simple activities or oversimplify the modeling of complex activities by targeting only whole-part relations between its sub-parts (e.g., actions). In this paper, we propose a semi-supervised approach that learns complex activities from the temporal patterns of concept compositions (e.g., " slicing-tomato " before " pouring into-pan "). We demonstrate that our method outperforms prior work in the task of automatic modeling and recognition of complex activities learned out of the interaction of 218 distinct concepts.
