This paper describes an improved methodology for human motion recognition and imitation based on factorial hidden Markov models (FHMM). Unlike conventional hidden Markov models (HMMs), FHMMs use a distributed state representation, which allows for more efficient representation of each time sequence. Once the FHMMs are trained with exemplar motion data, they can be used to generate sample trajectories for motion production, and produce significantly more accurate trajectories compared to single… CONTINUE READING
