Landmark-based human action recognition in videos is a challenging task in computer vision. One key step is to design a generic approach that generates discriminative features for the spatial structure and temporal dynamics. To this end, we regard the evolving landmark data as a high-dimensional path and apply non-linear path signature techniques to provide an expressive, robust, non-linear, and interpretable representation for the sequential events. We do not extract signature features from… 
Skeleton-based Gesture Recognition Using Several Fully Connected Layers with Path Signature Features and Temporal Transformer Module
A robust feature descriptor, path signature (PS), is leveraged, and three PS features are proposed to explicitly represent the spatial and temporal motion characteristics, i.e., spatial PS (S_PS), temporal PS (T_PS) and temporal spatial PS(T_S-PS), which achieves the state-of-the-art performance on skeleton-based gesture recognition with high computational efficiency.
Neural-Signature Methods for Structured EHR Prediction
This first application of neural-signature methods in real-world healthcare data shows a competitive performance when compared to strong baselines and thus warrants further investigation within the health domain.
