Human Action Recognition Using Pyramid Vocabulary Tree
The bag-of-visual-words (BOVW) approaches are widely used in human action recognition. Usually, large vocabulary size of the BOVW is more discriminative for inter-class action classification while small one is more robust to noise and thus tolerant to the intra-class invariance. In this pape, we propose a pyramid vocabulary tree to model local spatio-temporal features, which can characterize the inter-class difference and also allow intra-class variance. Moreover, since BOVW is geometrically unconstrained, we further consider the spatio-temporal information of local features and propose a sparse spatio-temporal pyramid matching kernel (termed as SST-PMK) to compute the similarity measures between video sequences. SST-PMK satisfies the Mercer’s condition and therefore is readily integrated into SVM to perform action recognition. Experimental results on the Weizmann datasets show that both the pyramid vocabulary tree and the SST-PMK lead to a significant improvement in human action rec...
