ADMA 2019 Competition

The competition seeks to develop robust automatic event detection for a multi-camera streaming video environment. Activities will be enriched by person and object detection. The systems will address activity detection for both forensic applicaitons and for real-time alterting. This competition will be held together with The 15Th International Conference on Advanced Data Mining and Applications (ADMA) on 21-23 November 2019 in Dalian, China.

About ADMA 2019 Competition

  • The ADMA 2019 Competition will be “Robust Automated Event Detection for Mult-Camera Streaming Video Environment”. This competition intends to develop robust automated activity detection for a multi-camera streaming video environment. As an essential aspect of this competition, activities will be enriched by person and object detection, as well as recognition at multiple levels of granularity.
  • This competition will focus on three major thrusts:
  • 1) Detection of primitive activities occurring in ground-based video collection; Examples include:
    • (1) Person getting into a vehicle,
    • (2) Person getting out of a vehicle,
    • (3) Person carrying object.
  • 2) Detection of complex activities, including pre-specified or newly defined activities; Examples include:
    • (1) Person being picked up by vehicle,
    • (2) Person abandoning object,
    • (3) Two people exchaning an object,
    • (4) Person carrying a firearm.
  • 3) Person and object detection and recognition across multiple overlapping and nonoverlapping camera viewpoints.
  • This competition will produce a common framework and software prototype for activity detection, person/object detection and recognition across a multi-camera network. The impact will be the development of tools for forensic analysis, as well as real-time alerting for userdefined threat scenarios.
  • — How to Participate

  • The ADMA 2019 competition team will send you information on how to download data. Then you will email your JSON formatted to the competition team. The team will evaluate your result, and update on the leaderboard.
  • — Judging Criteria and Metrics
  • The main scoring metrics was based on activity detection using the weighted probability of missed detection at 0.15 false alarms per minute averaged over activity types. You can find the scoring software here .
