Restricted Boltzmann Machines (RBMs) are widely used in a number of applications in the literature, but they have been poorly considered in the context of action recognition in videos. The main problem concerns encoding the temporal dependence present in such multimedia data, which is of crucial importance to recognize the numerous situations that may occur in a sequence of frames. In this project, we propose to apply RBMs to analyze videos in order to recognize actions performed by people in different situations, as well as we also intend to evaluate temporal-based RBMs.
