Temporal Action Localization by Structured Maximal Sums

This repo contains training and testing code for:

Zehuan Yuan, Jonathan Stroud, Tong Lu, and Jia Deng. Temporal Action Localization by Structured Maximal Sums. CVPR 2017.

Usage Guide

Prerequisites

Our code requires the following dependencies:

This repo installs a modified version of Caffe, so it is not a required dependency. However, all caffe dependencies are required.

We recommend a local installation of all dependencies.

GPU(s) are required for optical flow extraction, model training, and testing.

Installation & Data Preparation

  1. Clone this repository:
git clone git@github.com:shallowyuan/struct-max-sum.git
  1. Rename Makefile.config.example to Makefile.config and edit it following the caffe installation instructions. Note: Our code is only tested on opencv-2.4.13.

  2. Make training code:

cmake .
make all -j8
make matcaffe
  1. Make testing code:
cd action_matlab/tools
make clean
make all
  1. Additionally install leveldb-matlab in action_matlab to make testing work.

Note: our code trains and evaluates on Thumos14. To train or test using other datasets, follow the instructions in data to prepare the database.

All videos are extracted into individual frames, and stored using leveldb. Dense optical flow is extracted using denseflow.

Testing

  1. Download our pretrained models:
cd data/models
bash ../../get_reference_models.sh
  1. Extract confidence scores. Our model first extracts confidence scores for each video, which are saved into action_matlab/tools/testmat. The input type to model_def can be used to differentiate between flow and rgb.
cd action_matlab/tools
mkdir testmat
matlab 
model_inference(model,model_def,type)
  1. Get final predictions:
matlab < sliding_infer.m
  1. Evaluate performance. Detections from sliding_infer are stored in result.txt. We evaluate performance of these detections using the official Thumos14 metric.
matlab
TH14evalDet(<detfilename>,<gtpath>,<subset>,<threshold>)

Training

  1. Follow the instructions in data to prepare the dataset.

  2. Download our intialization models:

cd data/models
bash ../scripts/get_init_models.sh
  1. [Optional] reconfigure models. We have provided the necessary configurations for models in the paper, as well as pre-trained models used for initialization. To try differnet configurations, you can change the prototxt parameters structsvm_loss_parameter in models/action_detection.

  2. Train the RGB model:

bash scripts/train.sh

Models will be saved in models. Note: Training has only been tested on one GPU.
