AVA (Atomic Visual Actions)

Introduced by Gu et al. in AVA: A Video Dataset of Spatio-temporally Localized Atomic Visual Actions

AVA is a project that provides audiovisual annotations of video for improving our understanding of human activity. Each of the video clips has been exhaustively annotated by human annotators, and together they represent a rich variety of scenes, recording conditions, and expressions of human activity. There are annotations for:

  • Kinetics (AVA-Kinetics) - a crossover between AVA and Kinetics. In order to provide localized action labels on a wider variety of visual scenes, authors provide AVA action labels on videos from Kinetics-700, nearly doubling the number of total annotations, and increasing the number of unique videos by over 500x.
  • Actions (AvA Actions) - the AVA dataset densely annotates 80 atomic visual actions in 430 15-minute movie clips, where actions are localized in space and time, resulting in 1.62M action labels with multiple labels per human occurring frequently.
  • Spoken Activity (AVA ActiveSpeaker, AVA Speech). AVA ActiveSpeaker: associates speaking activity with a visible face, on the AVA v1.0 videos, resulting in 3.65 million frames labeled across ~39K face tracks. AVA Speech densely annotates audio-based speech activity in AVA v1.0 videos, and explicitly labels 3 background noise conditions, resulting in ~46K labeled segments spanning 45 hours of data.
