For three consecutive years, the Institute for Infocomm Research (I²R) took part in the EPIC-KITCHENS Challenge. It is a unique challenge that compels researchers worldwide to work with entirely unscripted datasets. It comprises of over 100 hours of HD recordings capturing all daily activities in the kitchen, 20 million image frames, 90,000 distinct actions, and 20,000 unique narrations across multiple languages. 

I²R emerged 1st place for the Unsupervised Domain Adaptation (UDA) for Action Recognition category, from 2021 to 2023 and topped the newly launched Hand Object Segmentation (HOS) category in 2023.
Other contenders include global universities and research institutes.
