A survey on very recent and efficient space-time methods for action recognition is presented. We select the methods with highest accuracy achieved on the challenging datasets such as: HMDB51, UCF101 and Hollywood2. This research focuses on two main space-time based approaches, namely the hand-crafted and deep learning features. The key to good human action recognition is robust human action modeling and feature representation. Feature representation and selection is a classic problem in computer vision and machine learning . Unlike feature representation in an image space, the feature representation of

Generally, there are two major parts in a human action recognition system: human action representation, recognition strategy. Laptev  propose space-time interest points for a compact representation of video data, and explore the advantage of using space-time interest points to describe human action. In fact, how to represent an action video with expressive features plays an especially important role in both multiview and single-view action recognition. A video representation with strong discriminative and descriptive ability is able to express human action reasonably and supply sufficient information to action classifier, which will lead ...
Medical images like MRIs, CTs (3D images) are very similar to videos - both of them encode 2D spatial information over a 3rd dimension. Much like diagnosing abnormalities from 3D images, action recognition from videos would require capturing context from entire video rather than just capturing information from each frame.

We address the problem of action recognition in unconstrained videos. We propose a novel content driven pooling that leverages space-time context while being robust toward global space-time transformations. Being robust to such transformations is of primary importance in unconstrained videos where the action localizations can drastically shift between frames. Our pooling identifies regions of ... high-level patterns from data. We then propose a simultaneous on-line video segmentation and recognition of actions using linear SVMs. The main contribution of the paper is an effective real-time system for one-shot action modeling and recognition; the paper highlights the effectiveness of sparse coding techniques to represent 3D actions. Human action recognition from low quality video remains a challenging task for the action recognition community. Recent state-of-the-art methods such as space-time interest point (STIP) uses shape and motion features for characterization of action. However, STIP features are over-reliant on video quality and lack robust object semantics.
video further increases the difﬁculty to design efﬁcient and robust recognition method. Visual representations from action videos are crucial for dealing with these issues and designing effective recognition systems. Currently, there are mainly two types of video features available for action recognition, as illustrated in Figure 1. A sparse coding based framework is proposed for human action recognition.The proposed CS-Mltp descriptor performs better than other descriptors on RGB videos.The proposed framework significantly outperforms the state-of-the-art algorithms.The feature- and classifier-level fusions of color and depth information are explored.
