From Object Interactions to Fine-grained Video Understanding

Video understanding tasks such as action recognition and caption generation are crucial for various real-world applications in surveillance, video retrieval, human behavior understanding, etc. In this work, we present a generic recurrent module to detect relationships and interactions between arbitrary object groups for fine-grained video understanding. Our work is applicable to various open domain video… Continue reading From Object Interactions to Fine-grained Video Understanding
