Segmenting Visual Actions Based on Spatio-Temporal Motion Patterns

  title={Segmenting Visual Actions Based on Spatio-Temporal Motion Patterns},
  author={Yong Rui and P. Anandan},
The analysis of human action captured in video sequences has been a topic of considerable interest in computer vision. Much of the previous work has focused on the problem of action or activity recognition, but ignored the problem of detecting action boundaries in a video sequence containing unfamiliar and arbitrary visual actions. This paper presents an approach to this problem based on detecting temporal discontinuities of the spatial pattern of image motion that captures the action. We… CONTINUE READING
