Recurrent Pose Attention (RPAN)

Our Tensorflow implementation of Recurrent Pose Attention in Du et al.: "RPAN: An End-to-End Recurrent Pose-attention Network for Action Recognition in Videos".

Note that we are not associated with the original authors.

Required packages

Tested with python 2.7. The following additional packages are required: tensorflow, numpy, csv, cv2

Simple model

Our simple RPAN model in model_simple.py drops the parameter sharing method in Equation (2) of the paper. This is the version used in our submission for CVPR 2018 Moments in Time challenge.

Shared model

We also attempt provide a model with the original parameter sharing scheme described. It can be found in model_shared.py.

Pose Joint Maps

We provide an example on how to generate the joint maps in data_handler.py, see gkern() and load_pose_map(). Note that we use Openpose format (published as Cao et al.: "Realtime Multi-Person 2D Pose Estimation using Part Affinity Fields") throughout the project. If you are using a different pose detector, you will need to modify the code.

The file video1.npy is an example of what load_pose_map() expects. The format is Tx18x3, where each triplet is (x,y,confidence), and all values are in range [0,1]. In case there are multiple poses, we currently picked the one with highest confidence; if no pose is detected, we set the frame to all-zeros.

RGB data

We assume that the video is stored as a collection of jpeg files, sampled at 25 fps. The files are organized as: PREFIX/video_id/frame_000001.jpg etc.

Miscellaneous

Unlike the published paper, we use ResNet v2-50 to extract the convolutional cube. You can download our ResNet weights at http://cmlab.csie.ntu.edu.tw/~agethen/resnet_v2.npy . Please do not forget to edit util.py and adjust the path to the ResNet weights.
