In order to reduce the computational complexity, most of the video classification approaches represent video data at frame level. In this paper we investigate a novel perspective that combines frame features to create a global descriptor. The main contributions are: (i) a fast algorithm to densely extract global frame features which are easier and faster to(More)
The encoding method is an important factor for an action recognition pipeline. One of the key points for the encoding method is the assignment step. A very widely used super-vector encoding method is the vector of locally aggregated descriptors (VLAD), with very competitive results in many tasks. However, it considers only hard assignment and the criteria(More)
Encoding is one of the key factors for building an effective video representation. In the recent works, super vector-based encoding approaches are highlighted as one of the most powerful representation generators. Vector of Locally Aggregated Descriptors (VLAD) is one of the most widely used super vector methods. However, one of the limitations of VLAD(More)
Feature extraction and encoding represent two of the most crucial steps in an action recognition system. For building a powerful action recognition pipeline it is important that both steps are efficient and in the same time provide reliable performance. This work proposes a new approach for feature extraction and encoding that allows us to obtain real-time(More)
We introduce Spatio-Temporal Vector of Locally Max Pooled Features (ST-VLMPF), a super vector-based encoding method specifically designed for local deep features encoding. The proposed method addresses an important problem of video understanding: how to build a video representation that incorporates the CNN features over the entire video. Feature assignment(More)
For an action recognition system a decisive component is represented by the feature encoding part which builds the final representation that serves as input to a classifier. One of the shortcomings of the existing encoding approaches is the fact that they are built around hand-crafted features and they are not also highly competitive on encoding the current(More)
