Dense Video Captioning

21 papers with code • 3 benchmarks • 6 datasets

Most natural videos contain numerous events. For example, in a video of a “man playing a piano”, the video might also contain “another man dancing” or “a crowd clapping”. The task of dense video captioning involves both detecting and describing events in a video.

Multi-modal Dense Video Captioning

v-iashin/MDVC 17 Mar 2020

We apply automatic speech recognition (ASR) system to obtain a temporally aligned textual description of the speech (similar to subtitles) and treat it as a separate input alongside video frames and the corresponding audio track.

Vid2Seq: Large-Scale Pretraining of a Visual Language Model for Dense Video Captioning

google-research/scenic CVPR 2023

In this work, we introduce Vid2Seq, a multi-modal single-stage dense event captioning model pretrained on narrated videos which are readily-available at scale.

A Better Use of Audio-Visual Cues: Dense Video Captioning with Bi-modal Transformer

v-iashin/BMT 17 May 2020

We show the effectiveness of the proposed model with audio and visual modalities on the dense video captioning task, yet the module is capable of digesting any two modalities in a sequence-to-sequence task.

End-to-End Dense Video Captioning with Parallel Decoding

ttengwang/pdvc ICCV 2021

Dense video captioning aims to generate multiple associated captions with their temporal locations from the video.

Towards Automatic Learning of Procedures from Web Instructional Videos

LuoweiZhou/ProcNets-YouCook2 28 Mar 2017

To answer this question, we introduce the problem of procedure segmentation--to segment a video procedure into category-independent procedure segments.

Joint Event Detection and Description in Continuous Video Streams

VisionLearningGroup/JEDDi-Net 28 Feb 2018

In order to explicitly model temporal relationships between visual events and their captions in a single video, we also propose a two-level hierarchical captioning module that keeps track of context.

Bidirectional Attentive Fusion with Context Gating for Dense Video Captioning

JaywongWang/DenseVideoCaptioning CVPR 2018

We propose a bidirectional proposal method that effectively exploits both past and future contexts to make proposal predictions.

End-to-End Dense Video Captioning with Masked Transformer

salesforce/densecap CVPR 2018

To address this problem, we propose an end-to-end transformer model for dense video captioning.

Streamlined Dense Video Captioning

ttengwang/ESGN CVPR 2019

Dense video captioning is an extremely challenging task since accurate and coherent description of events in a video requires holistic understanding of video contents as well as contextual reasoning of individual events.

Dense-Captioning Events in Videos: SYSU Submission to ActivityNet Challenge 2020

ttengwang/dense-video-captioning-pytorch 21 Jun 2020

This technical report presents a brief description of our submission to the dense video captioning task of ActivityNet Challenge 2020.
