In this paper, we explore the idea of using only pose, without utilizing any temporal information, for human action recognition. In contrast to the other studies using complex action representations, we propose a simple method, which relies on extracting "key poses" from action sequences. Our contribution is two-fold. Firstly, representing the pose in a frame as a collection of line-pairs, we propose a matching scheme between two frames to compute their similarity. Secondly, to extract "key poses" for each action, we present an algorithm, which selects the most representative and discriminative poses from a set of candidates. Our experimental results on KTH and Weizmann datasets have shown that pose information by itself is quite effective in grasping the nature of an action and sufficient to distinguish one from others. © 2010 IEEE.

Erdal, M. A.; Ünlü, Ö. (Springer Science, 2018)In this paper we discuss some enlargements of the category of sets with semigroup actions and equivariant functions. We show that these enlarged categories possess two idempotent endofunctors. In the case of groups these ...
Hatun, Kardelen; Duygulu, Pınar (IEEE, 2008-12)We propose a method for recognizing human actions in videos. Inspired from the recent bag-of-words approaches, we represent actions as documents consisting of words, where a word refers to the pose in a frame. Histogram ...
İkizler, N.; Duygulu, P. (Elsevier BV, 2009-09-02)Most of the approaches to human action recognition tend to form complex models which require lots of parameter estimation and computation time. In this study, we show that, human actions can be simply represented by pose ...
