Automatic event recognition based on human action is both interesting and valuable research topic in the field of computer vision and deep learning. With the rapid increase and the explosive spread of data which is being captured momentarily, the need of fast and precise access to the right information has become challenging task with considerable importance for multiple practical applications, e.g., image and video search, sport data analysis, healthcare monitoring applications, monitoring and surveillance systems for indoor and outdoor activities, and video captioning. This research, part of my master’s thesis, develops an adaptive content-aware convolution neural network with the capability of analyzing, recognizing and interpreting the sport event in the Olympic games based on human action. 20 of the 33 sports scheduled for inclusion in the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 will be included in the collected data set to evaluate the proposed method. This method combines convolutional neural network (CNN) and transfer learning (fine-tuning method) to potentially achieve best performance with high accuracy and precision of the event recognition.
