The Activities in Extended Video Prize Challenge (ActEV-PC) seeks to encourage the development of robust automatic activity detection algorithms for a multi-camera streaming video environment. Challenge participants will develop activity detection and temporal localization algorithms for 18 activities that are to be found in extended videos and video streams. These videos contain significant spans without any activities and intervals with potentially multiple concurrent activities.
ActEV-PC will contain two phases – an open leaderboard evaluation (Phase 1) and an independent evaluation (Phase 2).
Phase 1 will be run as an open activity detection evaluation where participants will run their algorithms on provided videos on their own hardware and submit results to the challenge scoring server of the National Institutes of Standards and Technology (NIST). This phase will serve as a qualifying stage where the top 8
participants will proceed to phase 2.
