A Short Note about Kinetics-600

We describe an extension of the DeepMind Kinetics human action dataset from 400 classes, each with at least 400 video clips, to 600 classes, each with at least 600 video clips. In order to scale up the dataset we changed the data collection process so it uses multiple queries per class, with some of them in a language other than english - portuguese. This paper details the changes between the two versions of the dataset and includes a comprehensive set of statistics of the new version as well as baseline results using the I3D neural network architecture. The paper is a companion to the release of the ground truth labels for the public test set.
