We present a new active learning approach to incorporate human feedback for on-line unusual event detection. In contrast to most existing unsupervised methods that perform passive mining for unusual events, our approach automatically requests supervision for critical points to resolve ambiguities of interest, leading to more robust and accurate detection on subtle unusual events. The active learning strategy is formulated as a stream-based solution, i.e. it makes decision on-the-fly on whether

Experimental results on busy public space videos show that with minimal human supervision, our approach outperforms existing supervised and unsupervised learning strategies in identifying unusual events. In addition, better performance is achieved by using adaptive multi-criteria approach compared to existing single criterion and multi-criteria active learning strategies.
