In the current era, the implementation of automated security video surveillance systems is particularly needy in terms of human violence recognition. Nevertheless, the latter encounters various interlinked difficulties which require efficient solutions as well as feasible methods that provide a relevant distinction between normal human actions and abnormal ones. In this paper, we present an overview of these issues and a literature review of the related works and current research on-going

The classification algorithm is then carried out using a deep learning LSTM technique to classify generated features into eight specified violent and non-violent categories and a prediction value for each class of action is calculated. The whole model is trained on a public dataset and its classification capacity is evaluated on a confusion matrix which assembles all the predictions made by the system with their actual labels. The obtained results are promising and show that the proposed model can be potentially useful for detecting human violence.
