FSD-10: A Dataset for Competitive Sports Content Analysis

by   Shenlan Liu, et al.

Action recognition is an important and challenging problem in video analysis. Although the past decade has witnessed progress in action recognition with the development of deep learning, such process has been slow in competitive sports content analysis. To promote the research on action recognition from competitive sports video clips, we introduce a Figure Skating Dataset (FSD-10) for finegrained sports content analysis. To this end, we collect 1484 clips from the worldwide figure skating championships in 2017-2018, which consist of 10 different actions in men/ladies programs. Each clip is at a rate of 30 frames per second with resolution 1080 × 720. These clips are then annotated by experts in type, grade of execution, skater info, .etc. To build a baseline for action recognition in figure skating, we evaluate state-of-the-art action recognition methods on FSD-10. Motivated by the idea that domain knowledge is of great concern in sports field, we propose a keyframe based temporal segment network (KTSN) for classification and achieve remarkable performance. Experimental results demonstrate that FSD-10 is an ideal dataset for benchmarking action recognition algorithms, as it requires to accurately extract action motions rather than action poses. We hope FSD-10, which is designed to have a large collection of finegrained actions, can serve as a new challenge to develop more robust and advanced action recognition models.
