Abstract—Recently, researchers have sought to find the ideal way to recognize human actions through video using artificial intelligence due to the multiplicity of applications that rely on it in many fields. In general, the methods have been divided into traditional methods and deep learning methods, which have provided a qualitative leap in the field of computer vision. Convolutional neural network CNN and recurrent neural network RNN are the most popular algorithms used with images and video. The researchers combined the two algorithms to search for the best results in a lot of research. In an attempt to obtain improved results in motion recognition through video, we present in this paper a combined algorithm, which is divided into two main parts, CNN and RNN. In the first part there is a preprocessing stage to make the video frame suitable for the input of both CNN networks which consist of a fusion of Inception-ResNet-V2 and GoogleNet to obtain activations, with the previously trained wights in Inception-ResNet-V2 and GoogleNet and then passed to a deep Gated Recurrent Units (GRU) connected to a fully connected SoftMax layer to recognize and distinguish the human action in the video. The results show that the proposed algorithm gives better accuracy of 97.97% with the UCF101 dataset and 73.12% in the hdmb51 data set compared to those present in the related literature.
