Incorporating Unsupervised Learning in Activity Recognition

Last modified: 2011-08-24


Users are constantly involved in a multitude of activities in ever-changing context. Analyzing activities in context-rich environments has become a great challenge in context-awareness research. Traditional methods for activity recognition, such as classification, cannot cope with the variety and dynamicity of context and activities. In this paper, we propose an activity recognition approach that incorporates unsupervised learning. We analyze the feasibility of applying subspace clustering---a specific type of unsupervised learning — to high-dimensional, heterogeneous sensory input. Then we present the correspondence between clustering output and classification input. This approach has the potential to discover implicit, evolving activities, and can provide valuable assistance to traditional classification based methods.
