2015 Looking at People ICCV Challenge

ChaLearn LaP @ ICCV2015:

Challenge and Workshop on Apparent Age Estimation and Cultural Event Recognition

NEWS: The ChaLearn LaP workshop will be held in conjunction with ICCV 2015

NEWS: Tracks 1 (Apparent Age Estimation) and 2 (Cultural Event Recognition) have already started. Enjoy the Challenge!

NEWS: The ChaLearn LaP workshop will be held in conjunction with ICCV 2015.


ChaLearn organizes at ICCV2015 two parallel challenge tracks on RGB data for apparent age estimation and cultural event recognition. For each Track, the awards for the first, second and third winners will consist of 1500, 1000 and 500 dollars, respectively. In addition, the three winners of each track will receive a travel grant of 500 dollars and an NVIDIA Titan X device.


The challenge features two quantitative tracks:

Track 1: Apparent Age Estimation: 5,000 images each displaying a single individual, labeled with the apparent age. Each image has been labeled by multiple individuals using a collaborative Facebook implementation. The votes variance is used as a measure of the error for the predictions. This is the first state of the art database for Apparent Age Recognition rather than Real Age recognition.

Track 2: Cultural Event Recognition: Near 30,000 images corresponding to 100 different cultural event categories will be considered. In all the categories, garments, human poses, objects and context will be possible cues to be exploited for recognizing the events, while preserving the inherent inter- and intra-class variability of this type of images. Examples of cultural events are Carnival, Oktoberfest, San Fermin, Maha-Kumbh-Mela, Aoi-Matsuri. Jordi Gonzàlez and Júnior Fabian gratefully acknowledge the support of NVIDIA Corporation with the donation of the Tesla K40 GPU used for creating the baseline of this Track.

Top three ranked participants on each track will be awarded and invited to follow the workshop submission guide for inclusion of a description of their system at the ICCV 2015 conference proceedings.
