摘要：Human action recognition typically requires a large amount of training samples, which is often expensive and time-consuming to create. In this paper, we present a novel approach for enhancing human actions with a limited number of samples via structural average curves analysis. Our approach first learns average sequences from each pair of video samples for every action class and then gather them with original video samples together to form a new training set. Action modeling and recognition are proposed to be performed with the resulting new set. Our technique was evaluated on four benchmarking datasets. Our classification results are superior to those obtained with the original training sets, which suggests that the proposed method can potentially be integrated with other approaches to further improve their recognition performances.
