A Deep Ranking Model for Spatio-Temporal Highlight Detection from a 360° Video

We address the problem of highlight detection from a 360 degree video by summarizing it both spatially and temporally. Given a long 360 degree video, we spatially select pleasantly-looking normal field-of-view (NFOV) segments from unlimited field of views (FOV) of the 360 degree video, and temporally summarize it into a concise and informative highlight as a selected subset of subshots. We propose a novel deep ranking model named as Composition View Score (CVS) model, which produces a spherical score map of composition per video segment, and determines which view is suitable for highlight via a sliding window kernel at inference.
