ARTNet aims to learn spatiotemporal features from videos in an end-to-end manner. Its construction is based on a newly-designed module, termed as SMART block. ARTNet is a simple and general video architecture and all these relased models are trained from scratch on video dataset. Currently, for an engineering compromise between accuracy and efficiency, ARTNet is instantiated with the ResNet-18 architecture and trained on the input volume of 112*112*16.

Training on Kinetics

The training of ARTNet is based on our modified Caffe toolbox. Specical thanks to @zbwglory for modifying this code.

The training code is under folder of models/.

Performance on the validation set of Kinetics

Model Backbone architecture Spatial resolution Top-1 Accuracy Top-5 Accuracy
C2D   ResNet18     112*112   61.2 82.6
C3D   ResNet18     112*112   65.6 85.7
C3D   ResNet34     112*112   67.1 86.9
ARTNet (s)   ResNet18     112*112   67.7 87.1
ARTNet (d)   ResNet18     112*112   69.2 88.3
ARTNet+TSN   ResNet18     112*112   70.7 89.3

These models are trained on the Kinetics dataset from scratch and tested on the validation set. Our training is performed based on the input volume of 112*112*16. The test is performed by cropping 25 clips from the videos.

Fine tuning on HMDB51 and UCF101

The fine tuning process is conducted based on the TSN framework, where segment number is 2.

The fine tuning code is under folder of fine_tune/

Performance on the datasets of HMDB51 and UCF101

Model Backbone architecture Spatial resolution HMDB51 UCF101
C3D   ResNet18     112*112   62.1 89.8
ARTNet (d)   ResNet18     112*112   67.6 93.5
ARTNet+TSN   ResNet18     112*112   70.9 94.3

These models learned on the Kinetics dataset are transferred to the HMDB51 and UCF101 datasets. The fine-tuning process is done with TSN framework where the segment number is 2. The performance is reported over three splits by using only RGB input.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
