2015 Looking at People Challenge

ChaLearn LaP @ CVPR2015:

Challenge and Workshop on Pose Recovery, Action Recognition, and Cultural Event Recognition



NEWS:We are working in the next edition of the Chalearn challenge which will begin next month... stay tuned!!


NEWS: If your methodology is applied to these datasets and your results are published the proper reference is: X. Baró, J. Gonzàlez, J. Fabian, M.A. Bautista, M. Oliu, H.J. Escalante, I. Guyon, S. Escalera, "ChaLearn Looking at People 2015 challenges: action spotting and cultural event recognition", CVPR Workshops, 2015.

 

ChaLearn organizes in 2015 parallel challenge tracks on RGB data for Human Pose Recovery, action/interaction spotting, and cultural event recognition. For each Track, the awards for the first, second and third winners will consist of 500, 300 and 200 dollars, respectively.

 

The challenge features three quantitative tracks:


Track 1: Human Pose Recovery: More than 8,000 frames of continuous RGB sequences are recorded and labeled with the objective of performing human pose recovery by means of recognizing more than 120,000 human limbs of different people. Examples of labeled frames are shown in Fig. 1.


Track 2: Action/Interaction Recognition: 235 performances of 11 action/interaction categories are recorded and manually labeled in continuous RGB sequences of different people performing natural isolated and collaborative actions randomly. Examples of labeled actions are shown in Fig. 1.


Track 4: Cultural Event Recognition: More than 10,000 images corresponding to 50 different cultural event categories will be considered. In all the categories, garments, human poses, objects and context will be possible cues to be exploited for recognizing the events, while preserving the inherent inter- and intra-class variability of this type of images. Examples of cultural events will be Carnival, Oktoberfest, San Fermin, Maha-Kumbh-Mela and Aoi-Matsuri, among others, see Fig. 2. We gratefully acknowledge the support of NVIDIA Corporation with the donation of the Tesla K40 GPU used for creating the baseline of this Track.

Top three ranked participants on each track will be awarded and invited to follow the workshop submission guide for inclusion of a description of their system at the CVPR 2015 conference proceedings.
