Action recognition is an important research topic in computer vision and has been successfully applied to many vision-related practical applications, such as human-computer interaction and smart video surveillance. However, the accuracy of computerised action recognition is not commensurate with the human response. Mr Zong proposed to directly perform 3D convolutions on a multiple cue-based input, instead of a single cue-based input, for action recognition. He demonstrated that directly performing 3D convolutions on multiple cues achieved higher accuracy than a single cue. He proposed a motion saliency stream to capture the salient motion information, and a spatial saliency stream to capture the spatial saliency information. Experimental results showed that both spatial saliency information and motion saliency information is helpful for improving the classification accuracy.
