HARD-Net: Hardness-AwaRe Discrimination Network for 3D Early Activity Prediction

Tianjiao Li, Jun Liu, Wei Zhang, Lingyu Duan ;


Predicting the class label from the partially observed activity sequence is a very hard task, as the observed early segments of different activities can be very similar. In this paper, we propose a novel Hardness-AwaRe Discrimination Network (HARD-Net) to specifically investigate the relationships between the similar activity pairs that are hard to be discriminated. Specifically, a Hard Instance-Interference Class (HI-IC) bank is designed, which dynamically records the hard similar pairs. Based on the HI-IC bank, a novel adversarial learning scheme is proposed to train our HARD-Net, which thus grants our network with the strong capability in mining subtle discrimination information for 3D early activity prediction. We evaluate our proposed HARD-Net on two public activity datasets and achieve state-of-the-art performance."
