The method that is presently considered the state of the art on extraction of spatio-temporal features from videos is based on finding keypoints and dense trajectories to apply classical feature extraction algorithms, like SIFT and HOG. With the recent improvement on the processing capacity of CPUs and GPUs, combined with the increasing avaliability of video and image datasets, representation learning methods, especially deep learning methods, have reached state of the art performance in several areas in artificial inteligence and signal processing. Even with the good results obtained by these methods, they have only been applied a few times to spatio-temporal feature extraction from videos a few times. Research in this area have achieved promissing results, however, most of the methods focus on a single application, restricting the use of the learned features. Also, there are promissing concepts that were used to design hand-crafted features and were not yet tested in a representation learning context. In this project, we propose the development of representation learning algorithms for extraction of spatio-temporal features from videos. We expect that these methods will be able to extract features that are capable of describing events that can't be capture through a single frame, but with the development of a scene. We intend for these features to form a multidimensional time series that encodes spatial information. To evaluate the quality of the representations, visualization and projection techniques will be used to permit the analysis of the feature space. We will also use methods that allow us to visualize extracted features, this way it will be possible to create a connection between features and the events that occur in the videos. (AU)
