The ActivityNet Large Scale Activity Recognition Challenge is a half-day workshop to be held on July 1 in conjuction with CVPR 2016, in Las Vegas, Nevada. In this workshop, we establish a new challenge to stimulate the computer vision community to develop new algorithms and techinques that improve the state-of-the-art in human activity understanding. The data of this challenge is based on the newly published ActivityNet benchmark.
The challenge focuses on recognizing high-level and goal oriented activities from user generated videos, similar to those found in internet portals. This challenge is tailored to 200 activity categories in two different tasks. (a) Untrimmed Classification Challenge: Given a long video, predict the labels of the activities present in the video; (b) Detection Challenge: Given a long video, predict the labels and temporal extents of the activities present in the video.
