MSR-VTT (Microsoft Research Video to Text) is a large-scale dataset for the open domain video captioning, which consists of 10,000 video clips from 20 categories, and each video clip is annotated with 20 English sentences by Amazon Mechanical Turks. There are about 29,000 unique words in all captions. The standard splits uses 6,513 clips for training, 497 clips for validation, and 2,990 clips for testing.

The Microsoft Research Video Description Corpus (MSVD) dataset consists of about 120K sentences collected during the summer of 2010. Workers on Mechanical Turk were paid to watch a short video snippet and then summarize the action in a single sentence. The result is a set of roughly parallel descriptions of more than 2,000 video snippets. Because the workers were urged to complete the task in the language of their choice, both paraphrase and bilingual alternations are captured in the data.

The ActivityNet Captions dataset is built on ActivityNet v1.3 which includes 20k YouTube untrimmed videos with 100k caption annotations. The videos are 120 seconds long on average. Most of the videos contain over 3 annotated events with corresponding start/end time and human-written sentences, which contain 13.5 words on average. The number of videos in train/validation/test split is 10024/4926/5044, respectively.

YouCook2 is the largest task-oriented, instructional video dataset in the vision community. It contains 2000 long untrimmed videos from 89 cooking recipes; on average, each distinct recipe has 22 videos. The procedure steps for each video are annotated with temporal boundaries and described by imperative English sentences (see the example below). The videos were downloaded from YouTube and are all in the third-person viewpoint. All the videos are unconstrained and can be performed by individual persons at their houses with unfixed cameras. YouCook2 contains rich recipe types and various cooking styles from all over the world.

VATEX is multilingual, large, linguistically complex, and diverse dataset in terms of both video and natural language descriptions. It has two tasks for video-and-language research: (1) Multilingual Video Captioning, aimed at describing a video in various languages with a compact unified captioning model, and (2) Video-guided Machine Translation, to translate a source language description into the target language using the video information as additional spatiotemporal context.

This data set was prepared from 88 open-source YouTube cooking videos. The YouCook dataset contains videos of people cooking various recipes. The videos were downloaded from YouTube and are all in the third-person viewpoint; they represent a significantly more challenging visual problem than existing cooking and kitchen datasets (the background kitchen/scene is different for many and most videos have dynamic camera changes). In addition, frame-by-frame object and action annotations are provided for training data (as well as a number of precomputed low-level features). Finally, each video has a number of human provided natural language descriptions (on average, there are eight different descriptions per video). This dataset has been created to serve as a benchmark in describing complex real-world videos with natural language descriptions.

The Tumblr GIF (TGIF) dataset contains 100K animated GIFs and 120K sentences describing visual content of the animated GIFs. The animated GIFs have been collected from Tumblr, from randomly selected posts published between May and June of 2015. The dataset provides the URLs of animated GIFs. The sentences are collected via crowdsourcing, with a carefully designed annotation interface that ensures high quality dataset. There is one sentence per animated GIF for the training and validation splits, and three sentences per GIF for the test split. The dataset can be used to evaluate animated GIF/video description techniques.

VALUE is a Video-And-Language Understanding Evaluation benchmark to test models that are generalizable to diverse tasks, domains, and datasets. It is an assemblage of 11 VidL (video-and-language) datasets over 3 popular tasks: (i) text-to-video retrieval; (ii) video question answering; and (iii) video captioning. VALUE benchmark aims to cover a broad range of video genres, video lengths, data volumes, and task difficulty levels. Rather than focusing on single-channel videos with visual information only, VALUE promotes models that leverage information from both video frames and their associated subtitles, as well as models that share knowledge across multiple tasks.

To collect How2QA for video QA task, the same set of selected video clips are presented to another group of AMT workers for multichoice QA annotation. Each worker is assigned with one video segment and asked to write one question with four answer candidates (one correctand three distractors). Similarly, narrations are hidden from the workers to ensure the collected QA pairs are not biased by subtitles. Similar to TVQA, the start and end points are provided for the relevant moment for each question. After filtering low-quality annotations, the final dataset contains 44,007 QA pairs for 22k 60-second clips selected from 9035 videos.

Video-and-Language Inference is the task of joint multimodal understanding of video and text. Given a video clip with aligned subtitles as premise, paired with a natural language hypothesis based on the video content, a model needs to infer whether the hypothesis is entailed or contradicted by the given video clip. The Violin dataset is a dataset for this task which consists of 95,322 video-hypothesis pairs from 15,887 video clips, spanning over 582 hours of video. These video clips contain rich content with diverse temporal dynamics, event shifts, and people interactions, collected from two sources: (i) popular TV shows, and (ii) movie clips from YouTube channels.

Amazon Mechanical Turk (AMT) is used to collect annotations on HowTo100M videos. 30k 60-second clips are randomly sampled from 9,421 videos and present each clip to the turkers, who are asked to select a video segment containing a single, self-contained scene. After this segment selection step, another group of workers are asked to write descriptions for each displayed segment. Narrations are not provided to the workers to ensure that their written queries are based on visual content only. These final video segments are 10-20 seconds long on average, and the length of queries ranges from 8 to 20 words. From this process, 51,390 queries are collected for 24k 60-second clips from 9,371 videos in HowTo100M, on average 2-3 queries per clip. The video clips and its associated queries are split into 80% train, 10% val and 10% test.

The dataset contains the annotations of characters' visual appearances, in the form of tracks of face bounding boxes, and the associations with characters' textual mentions, when available. The detection and annotation of the visual appearances of characters in each video clip of each movie was achieved through a semi-automatic approach. The released dataset contains more than 24k annotated video clips, including 63k visual tracks and 34k textual mentions, all associated with their character identities.
