Abstract

Group action recognition is a challenging task in computer vision due to the large complexity induced by multiple motion patterns. This paper aims at analyzing group actions in video clips containing several activities. We combine the probability summation framework with the space-time (ST) interest points for this task. First, ST interest points are extracted from video clips to form the feature space. Then we use k-means for feature clustering and build a compact representation, which is then used for group action classification. The proposed approach has been applied to classification tasks including four classes: badminton, tennis, basketball, and soccer videos. The experimental results demonstrate the advantages of the proposed approach.
