Anomaly detection using a convolutional Winner-Take-All autoencoder

Hanh Tran and David Hogg

We propose a method that uses a convolutional autoencoder to learn motion representations on foreground optical flow patches. The sparsity constraint, known as Winner-Take-All (WTA), is combined with the autoencoder to promote shift-invariant and generic flow features. These motion representations are then coupled with an one-class Support Vector Machine to model normalities and detect anomalies in video.

We evaluate the approach on UCSD and CUHK Avenue datasets.
