GAYA: Semantic and Geometric Models for Video Interpretation

We have formed an associate team GAYA, with the primary goal of interpreting videos in terms of recognizing actions, understanding the human-human and human-object interactions. Despite several years of research, it is yet unclear what is an efficient and robust video representation to attack this challenge. In order to address this, GAYA will focus on building semantic models, wherein we learn the video feature representation with limited supervision, and also geometric models, where we study the geometric properties of object shapes to better recognize them. The team consists of researchers from two Inria project-teams (Thoth and WILLOW) and a US university (Carnegie Mellon University [CMU]). It will allow the three teams to effectively combine their respective strengths in areas such as inference and machine learning approaches for vision tasks, feature representation, large-scale learning, geometric reasoning. The main expected outcomes of this collaboration are: effective learnt representations of video content, new machine learning algorithms for handling minimally annotated data, large-scale public datasets for benchmarking, theoretical analysis of objects shapes and contours. Cordelia Schmid and Karteek Alahari are involved in this associate team.
