Unseen Video Understanding

Progress in video understanding has been astonishing in the past decade. Classifying actions, tracking objects and even segmenting actor instances at the pixel level is now common place, thanks to label-supervised machine learning. Yet, it is becoming increasingly clear that label-supervised knowledge transfer is expensive to obtain and scale, especially as the need for spatiotemporal detail and compositional semantic specification in long video sequences increases. In this talk we will discuss alternatives to label-supervision, using semantics, language, ontologies, physics and time as the primary knowledge sources for various video understanding challenges. Despite being less example-dependent, the proposed algorithmic solutions are naturally embedded in modern (self-)-learned representations and lead to state-of-the-art unseen video recognition and retrieval.
