Skeleton Focused Human Activity Recognition in RGB Video

by   Bruce X. B. Yu, et al.

The data-driven approach that learns an optimal representation of vision features like skeleton frames or RGB videos is currently a dominant paradigm for activity recognition. While great improvements have been achieved from existing single modal approaches with increasingly larger datasets, the fusion of various data modalities at the feature level has seldom been attempted. In this paper, we propose a multimodal feature fusion model that utilizes both skeleton and RGB modalities to infer human activity. The objective is to improve the activity recognition accuracy by effectively utilizing the mutual complemental information among different data modalities. For the skeleton modality, we propose to use a graph convolutional subnetwork to learn the skeleton representation. Whereas for the RGB modality, we will use the spatial-temporal region of interest from RGB videos and take the attention features from the skeleton modality to guide the learning process. The model could be either individually or uniformly trained by the back-propagation algorithm in an end-to-end manner. The experimental results for the NTU-RGB+D and Northwestern-UCLA Multiview datasets achieved state-of-the-art performance, which indicates that the proposed skeleton-driven attention mechanism for the RGB modality increases the mutual communication between different data modalities and brings more discriminative features for inferring human activities.
