HUMAN Pose Recovery and Behavior Analysis (HuPBA) is one of the most challenging topics in Computer Vision, Pattern Analysis and Machine Learning. It is of critical importance for application areas that include gaming, computer interaction, human robot interaction, security, commerce, assistive technologies and rehabilitation, sports, sign language recognition, and driver assistance technology, to mention just a few. In essence, HuPBA requires dealing with the articulated nature of the human… 
ChaLearn Looking at People: IsoGD and ConGD Large-Scale RGB-D Gesture Recognition
TLDR
This article proposes a bidirectional long short-term memory (Bi-LSTM) method, determining video division points based on skeleton points, and introduces the corrected segmentation rate (CSR) metric to evaluate the performance of temporal segmentation for continuous gesture recognition.
ChaLearn Looking at People RGB-D Isolated and Continuous Datasets for Gesture Recognition
TLDR
Two large video multi-modal datasets for RGB and RGB-D gesture recognition are presented and the baseline method based on the bag of visual words model is presented, designed for gesture classification from segmented data.
ChaLearn Looking at People and Faces of the World: Face AnalysisWorkshop and Challenge 2016
TLDR
A custom-build application was used to collect and label data about the apparent age of people (as opposed to the real age) and the citizen-science Zooniverse platform was used for the Faces of the World data.
Semi-Supervised Cross-Modal Retrieval Based on Discriminative Comapping
TLDR
A novel semi-supervised method for cross-modal retrieval named modal-related retrieval based on discriminative comapping (MRRDC) that makes full use of unlabelled data and demonstrates the superiority of the method compared with state-of-the-art subspace methods.
ChaLearn looking at people: A review of events and resources
TLDR
The historic of ChaLearn Looking at People events is reviewed, and the ChaLearn LAP platform is introduced where public resources (including code, data and preprints of papers) related to the organized events are available.
Lower Limb Exercise Rehabilitation Assessment Based on Artificial Intelligence and Medical Big Data
TLDR
The research is on robust controller for omni-directional mobile lower limb rehabilitation based on artificial intelligence and medical big data and the stability of this control law is proved based on Lyapunov’s theorem.
Deriving Driver Behavioral Pattern Analysis and Performance Using Neural Network Approaches
TLDR
This proposed approach evaluated multiple factors that were determinants in identifying specific driver behavior and driving styles and indicated that the driver model in question was successful in achieving a 90% accuracy in terms of logistic regression.
ChaLearn Looking at People: Events and Resources
TLDR
The historic of ChaLearn Looking at People events is reviewed, and the ChaLearn LAP platform is introduced where public resources related to the organized events are available and a discussion on perspectives of Cha learn LAP activities is provided.
Overcoming Calibration Problems in Pattern Labeling with Pairwise Ratings: Application to Personality Traits
TLDR
By performing extensive simulations, an empirical law is determined for the scaling of the number of pairs needed as a function of thenumber of videos in order to achieve a given accuracy of score reconstruction and it is shown that the pairwise method is affordable.
