Abstract: The world is inherently multi-label. Even when restricted to the space of actions, multiple things and events often happen simultaneously and a single label is commonly insufficient for adequately explaining the full meaning of an event. To develop methods reaching human-level understanding of dynamical events, we need to capture the complex nature of our environment. Here, we present a multi-label extension to the Moments in Time Dataset which includes annotation of multiple actions in each video. We perform a baseline analysis and compare recognition results, class selectivity, and network robustness of a temporal relation network (TRN) trained on both single-label Moments in Time and the proposed multi-label extension.
