On January 6th, 2020, Mr. Kaiqiang HUANG [黄凯强] of TU Dublin, Dublin, Ireland gave his research talk Human Action Recognition using Zero Shot Learning [零次学习运用于人体动作识别] at 14:30 in our meeting room 920 in our office building 53 [合肥学院53 栋920]. Mr. Huang received his Bachelor from our university [合肥学院] and TU Dublin in 2016 before doing his Master's at TU Dublin, where he now has become a fully-funded PhD student. His talk, introducing a method to combine semantic side information with learned human actions was highly exciting for the audience. In the over 15 minutes of discussion that followed, we delved into the depths of this interesting topic, which is directly relevant to the work of several of our team mates. I think our school can be proud of Mr. Huang, who has grown very much and has become an excellent researcher in such a short time.
In recent years, many works in the computer vision field have explored the human action or activity recognition problem using still images or videos. However, there is a demand for methods that can classify instances from classes that are not present in the stage of training models, especially in the complex task of automatic video understanding, since collecting, annotating, and labeling videos are difficult and laborious tasks.
