Detecting Human-Object Relationships in Videos
We study a crucial problem in video analysis: human-object relationship detection. The majority of previous approaches are developed only for the static image scenario, without incorporating the temporal dynamics so vital to contextualizing human-object relationships. We propose a model with Intra- and Inter-Transformers, enabling joint spatial and temporal reasoning on multiple visual concepts of objects, relationships, and human poses. We find that applying attention mechanisms among features distributed spatio-temporally greatly improves our understanding of human-object relationships. Our method is validated on two datasets, Action Genome and CAD-120-EVAR, and achieves state-of-the-art performance on both of them.
