Adaptive Activity Spotting Based on Event Rates
—To date many activity spotting approaches are static: once the system is trained and deployed it does not change anymore. There are substantial shortcomings of this approach, specifically spotting performance is hampered when patterns or sensor noise level changes. In this work an unsupervised sensitivity adaptation mechanism is proposed for activity event spotting based on expected activity event rates. The expected event rate for activity spotting was derived from the generalisation metric used in information retrieval. To illustrate generalisation effects and depict relations of spotting performance and event rate, different event rates were simulated and their precision-recall spotting performance analysed. Subsequently, the sensitivity adaptation concept is presented and evaluated. For this purpose two large datasets from personal healthcare applications were considered to explore benefits and limitations of this adaptation approach: recognition of drinking motions from inert...
