A social scene plays a crucial part in the real physical world that people live in. In social scene perception studies, recognition of actions and associated intentions can be influenced not only by the background information of the scene, but can also be related to the object of an action. Therefore, researchers could follow the relationships between the background and an object, or among various objects for analyzing the mechanism of action recognition. However, to detect and recognize an action and its associated intention, researchers could also employ semantics restriction and physical baffle of scene, and incorporate the principle of rational action for studying the biological signs following an action. In the field of machine vision, new research is emerging on models of computer recognition that are based on human-object interaction. In the future, researchers can consider the development of action and intention identification capacity, and can study the differences among individuals of various cultures for improving the studies conducted in this field of research.

Key words: social scene, action and intention, scene perception, model of computer recognition.
