The ICMR 2020 paper Interactivity Proposals for Surveillance Videos by Shuo Chen, Pascal Mettes, Tao Hu and Cees Snoek is now available. This paper introduces spatio-temporal interactivity proposals for video surveillance. Rather than focusing solely on actions performed by subjects, we explicitly include the objects that the subjects interact with. To enable interactivity proposals, we introduce the notion of interactivityness, a score that reflects the likelihood that a subject and object have an interplay. For its estimation, we propose a network containing an interactivity block and geometric encoding between subjects and objects. The network computes local interactivity likelihoods from subject and object trajectories, which we use to link intervals of high scores into spatio-temporal proposals. Experiments on an interactivity dataset with new evaluation metrics show the general benefit of interactivity proposals as well as its favorable performance compared to traditional temporal and spatio-temporal action proposals.
