Human action recognition and posture prediction aim to recognize and predict respectively the action and postures of persons in videos. They are both active research topics in computer vision community, which have attracted considerable attention from academia and industry. They are also the precondition for intelligent interaction and human-computer cooperation, and they help the machine perceive the external environment. In the past decade, tremendous progress has been made in the field,

In this paper, firstly, we attempt to present the background, and then discuss research progresses. Secondly, we introduce datasets, various typical feature representation methods, and explore advanced human action recognition and posture prediction algorithms. Finally, facing the challenges in the field, this paper puts forward the research focus, and introduces the importance of action recognition and posture prediction by taking interactive cognition in self-driving vehicle as an example.
