R-C3D: Region Convolutional 3D Network for Temporal Activity Detection

By Huijuan Xu, Abir Das and Kate Saenko (Boston University).

Introduction

We propose a fast end-to-end Region Convolutional 3D Network (R-C3D) for activity detection in continuous video streams. The network encodes the frames with fully-convolutional 3D filters, proposes activity segments, then classifies and refines them based on pooled features within their boundaries.

  1. Installation
  2. Preparation
  3. Training
  4. Testing

Installation:

  1. Clone the R-C3D repository.

    git clone --recursive git@github.com:VisionLearningGroup/R-C3D.git
  2. Build Caffe3d with pycaffe (see: Caffe installation instructions).

    Note: Caffe must be built with Python support!

    cd ./caffe3d
    
    # If have all of the requirements installed and your Makefile.config in place, then simply do:
    make -j8 && make pycaffe
  3. Build R-C3D lib folder.

    cd ./lib    
    make

Preparation:

  1. Download the ground truth annatations and videos in ActivityNet dataset.

    cd ./preprocess/activityNet/
    
    # Download the groud truth annotations in ActivityNet dataset.
    wget http://ec2-52-11-11-89.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com/files/activity_net.v1-3.min.json
    
    # Download the videos in ActivityNet dataset into ./preprocess/activityNet/videos.
    python download_video.py
  2. Extract frames from downloaded videos in 25 fps.

    # training video frames are saved in ./preprocess/activityNet/frames/training/
    # validation video frames are saved in ./preprocess/activityNet/frames/validation/ 
    python generate_frames.py
  3. Generate the pickle data for training and testing R-C3D model.

    # generate training data
    python generate_roidb_training.py
    # generate validation data
    python generate_roidb_validation.py

Training:

  1. Download C3D classification pretrain model to ./pretrain/ .

    The C3D model weight pretrained on Sports1M and finetuned on ActivityNet dataset is provided in: caffemodel .

  2. In R-C3D root folder, run:

    ./experiments/activitynet/script_train.sh

Testing:

  1. Download one sample R-C3D model to ./snapshot/ .

    One R-C3D model on ActivityNet dataset is provided in: caffemodel .

    The provided R-C3D model has the Average-mAP 14.4% on the validation set.

  2. In R-C3D root folder, generate the prediction log file on the validation set.

    ./experiments/activitynet/test/script_test.sh
  3. Generate the results.json file from the prediction log file.

    cd ./experiments/activitynet/test
    python activitynet_log_analysis.py test_log_<iters>.txt.*
  4. Get the detection evaluation result.

    cd ./experiments/activitynet/test/Evaluation
    python get_detection_performance.py data/activity_net.v1-3.min.json ../results.json

Notes:

The codes for THUMOS'14 dataset and Charades dataset are uploaded to the corresponding folders.
