I have just added in accepted papers in CVPR 2011 on action recognition and subspace segmentation. There’s a noticeable blossom of papers on various aspects of action recognition, which almost doubles the number accepted in CVPR 2010. While it’s great to see people shifting their attention onto this topic, I regret to say many papers are only worth 30 seconds glimpse and period. And still, many authors have not released their papers to the public places (for which I cannot add links, and I’m never willing to add links to in front of a pay-wall). My most reluctant response to this is to direct those to my blog article Nobody Cares about You and Your Paper.
And new challenges and opportunities always come with a new dataset in vision, especially when it’s gigantic in size. In this regard, VIRAT Video Dataset could be described as large-scale, for now.
