Manipulation action recognition is a challenging problem in computer vision. We previously reported a system based on matching groups of superpixels. In this paper, we modify the superpixel group mining algorithm and report results on two datasets. Recognition accuracies are comparable with those reported using deep learning. The representation used in our approach is amenable to interpretation. Specifically, visualisation of matched groups provides a level of explanation for recognition decisions and insights into the likely generalisation ability of action representations.
