Predicting the categories of actions in partially observed videos is a challenging task in the computer vision field. The temporal progress of an ongoing action is of great importance for action prediction, since actions can present different characteristics at different temporal stages. To this end, we propose a novel multi-task deep forest framework, which treats temporal progress analysis as a relevant task to action prediction and takes advantage of observation ratio labels of incomplete videos during training. The proposed multi-task deep forest is a cascade structure of random forests and multi-task random forests. Unlike the traditional single-task random forests, multi-task random forests are built upon incomplete training videos annotated with action labels as well as temporal progress labels. Meanwhile, incorporating both random forests and multi-task random forests can increase the diversity of classifiers and improve the discriminative power of the multi-task deep forest. Experiments on the UT-Interaction and the BIT-Interaction datasets demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed multi-task deep forest. View Full-Text
