Evaluating Method Design Options for Action Classification based on Bags of Visual Words

Abstract

The Bags of Visua lWords (BoVWs) framework has been applied successfully to several computer vision tasks. In this work we are particularly interested on its application to the problem of action recognition/classification. The key design decisions for a method that follows the BoVWs framework are (a) the visual features to be employed, (b) the size of the codebook to be used for representing a certain action and (c) the classifier applied to the developed representation to solve the classification task. We perform several experiments to investigate a variety of options regarding all the aforementioned design parameters. We also propose a new feature type and we suggest a method that determines automatically the size of the codebook. The experimental results show that our proposals produce results that are competitive to the outcomes of state of the art methods.
