We introduce an online action recognition system that can be combined with any set of frame-by-frame feature descriptors. Our system covers the frame feature space with classifiers whose distribution adapts to the hardness of locally approximating the Bayes optimal classifier. An efficient nearest neighbour search is used to find and combine the local(More)
A novel technique to classify time series with imprecise hidden Markov models is presented. The learning of these models is achieved by coupling the EM algorithm with the imprecise Dirichlet model. In the stationarity limit, each model corresponds to an imprecise mixture of Gaussian densities, this reducing the problem to the classification of static,(More)
—Decision tree classifiers are a widely used tool in data stream mining. The use of confidence intervals to estimate the gain associated with each split leads to very effective methods, like the popular Hoeffding tree algorithm. From a statistical viewpoint, the analysis of decision tree classifiers in a streaming setting requires knowing when enough new(More)
—Stream mining poses unique challenges to machine learning: predictive models are required to be scalable, incre-mentally trainable, must remain bounded in size (even when the data stream is arbitrarily long), and be nonparametric in order to achieve high accuracy even in complex and dynamic environments. Moreover, the learning system must be parameterless(More)

Recognising human activities from streaming videos poses unique challenges to learning algorithms: predic-tive models need to be scalable, incrementally trainable, and must remain bounded in size even when the data stream is arbitrarily long. Furthermore, as parameter tuning is problematic in a streaming setting, suitable approaches should be parameterless,(More)
