Many real-world applications that focus on addressing needs of a human, require information about the activities being performed by the human in real-time. While advances in pervasive computing have lead to the development of wireless and non-intrusive sensors that can capture the necessary activity information, current activity recognition approaches have… (More)
Due to an increased popularity of assistive healthcare technologies activity recognition has become one of the most widely studied problems in technology-driven assistive healthcare domain. Current approaches for smart-phone based activity recognition focus only on simple activities such as locomotion. In this paper, in addition to recognizing simple… (More)
The CASAS architecture facilitates the development and implementation of future smart home technologies by offering an easy-to-install lightweight design that provides smart home capabilities out of the box with no customization or training.
The advent of wearable sensors like accelerometers has opened a plethora of opportunities to recognize human activities from other low resolution sensory streams. In this paper we formulate recognizing activities from accelerometer data as a classification problem. In addition to the statistical and spectral features extracted from the acceleration data, we… (More)
Surgical movement is composed of discrete gestures that are combined to perform complex surgical procedures. A promising approach to objective surgical skill evaluation systems is kinematics and kinetic analysis of hand movement that yields a gesture level analysis of proficiency of a performed movement. In this paper, we propose a novel system that… (More)
Activity recognition has received increasing attention from the machine learning community. Of particular interest is the ability to recognize activities in real time from streaming data, but this presents a number of challenges not faced by traditional offline approaches. Among these challenges is handling the large amount of data that does not belong to a… (More)
Many intelligent systems that focus on the needs of a human require information about the activities being performed by the human. At the core of this capability is activity recognition, which is a challenging and well-researched problem. Activity recognition algorithms require substantial amounts of labeled training data yet need to perform well under very… (More)
Many intelligent systems that focus on the needs of a human require information about the activities that are being performed by the human. At the core of this capability is activity recognition. Activity recognition techniques have become robust but rarely scale to handle more than a few activities. They also rarely learn from more than one smart home data… (More)
