VRDFormer: End-to-End Video Visual Relation Detection With Transformers

CVPR 2022  ·  Sipeng Zheng, ShiZhe Chen, Qin Jin ·

Visual relation understanding plays an essential role for holistic video understanding. Most previous works adopt a multi-stage framework for video visual relation detection (VidVRD), which cannot capture long-term spatiotemporal contexts in different stages and also suffers from inefficiency. In this paper, we propose a transformerbased framework called VRDFormer to unify these decoupling stages. Our model exploits a query-based approach to autoregressively generate relation instances. We specifically design static queries and recurrent queries to enable efficient object pair tracking with spatio-temporal contexts. The model is jointly trained with object pair detection and relation classification. Extensive experiments on two benchmark datasets, ImageNet-VidVRD and VidOR, demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed VRDFormer, which achieves the state-of-the-art performance on both relation detection and relation tagging tasks.
