AViD Dataset: Anonymized Videos from Diverse Countries

AViD is a large-scale video dataset published at NeurIPS 2020 (AViD NeurIPS details for video, poster and presentation information). It has 467k videos and 887 action classes. Importantly, AViD has several key attributes:

Static

The collected videos have a Creative-Commons License, allowing us to create and distribute a static dataset collected from various web sources (e.g., Flickr, Instagram, etc.). Unlike other YouTube-based datasets (e.g., Kinetics), the dataset is static and easily downloadable enabling reproducible research. We further release this dataset under a flexible MIT license, unlike more restrictive video datasets (e.g., Moments-in-Time and SomethingSomething). The dataset has similar size to the other standard video datasets.

Anonymized

All the faces in the videos have been blurred so that no person can be identified.

Diverse

The videos have been collected from a wide range of countries and sources. This is important as some actions, for example greeting, are performed differently in different cultures. Other actions, like news broadcasts, can have different text depending on the country. We find the model is unable to recognize videos from different countries without diverse training data (Tables 3, 4 and 5 in the paper).

Classes

The AViD dataset consists of 887 activity classes, capturing similiar actions to those in Kinetics, plus some additional actions such as talking, explosion, boating, etc. The classes follow a long-tailed distribution. More details on the classes and hierarchy of actions are described in the paper.
