Dear All,

We are organizing the ActEV 1.B Evaluation (https://actev.nist.gov/), with the goals to assess the capability of algorithms to correctly detect activities in unconstrained videos. The first phase of the evaluation is run as a  Self-Reported Evaluation. We invite everyone to take part in the evaluation.

The revised draft evaluation plan (https://actev.nist.gov/uassets/7) for the 1.B evaluation. Page 8 of the Evaluation plan has the list of 19 activities for the 1.B Eval and Appendix C has descriptions about the activities. The 1.B Test data will be based on the VIRAT-V1 and VIRAT-V2 datasets (the Leaderboard Test data was only based on VIRAT V1 dataset).

Besides the AD and AOD task, we have added the Activity Object Detection and Tracking (AODT) task.

Also, download the VIRAT-V1 JSON training and validation sets  for the 1.B evaluation (same as for the ActEV Leaderboard evaluation), and includes the 19 activities and all the object bounding boxes, from the link: https://mig.nist.gov/actev-data/
