Description of the 1st SkatingVerse Workshop & Challenge

Human action understanding (HAU) is an essential topic in computer vision. Typically, HAU aims to locate, classify, and assess the human actions from a given video. Many tasks, e.g., action recognition, action segmentation, action localization, and action assessment, belong to the research scope of HAU. However, in a real-world scenario, it is typically necessary not only to segment each fine-grained action but also to assess their quality. Existing tasks and corresponding methods alone cannot meet this requirement. To this end, we construct a dataset consisting of 1,687 continuous videos in figure skating competition. We encourage participants to develop intelligent computer vision algorithms that can segment and assess each single action in an original and continuous competition video. Particularly, algorithms that can distinguish exactly similar actions and give a score based on action competition are highly expected. We hope this challenge can further promote the machine's perceptual cognition, which is a big step in real artificial intelligence.

This workshop will bring together academic and industrial experts in the field of HAU to discuss the techniques and applications of HAU. Participants are invited to submit their original contributions, surveys, and case studies that address the human actions perception and understanding issues.
