Unsupervised Discovery of Abnormal Activity Occurrences in Multi-dimensional Time Series, with Applications in Wearable Systems
We present a method for unsupervised discovery of abnormal occurrences of activities in multi-dimensional time series data. Unsupervised activity discovery approaches differ from traditional supervised methods in that there is no requirement for manually labeled training datasets. In addition, they minimize the need for field experts' knowledge during the setup phases, which makes the deployment phase faster and simpler. We focus our attention on wearable computing systems and their applications in human activity monitoring for health care and medicine. The developed method constructs activity models in multi-dimensional time series based on the frequency and coincidence of activity perceptual primitives in single-dimensional time series data. We study the frequent variations exposed in human activity time series data and leverage physical attributes of the data to classify the activity primitives. A graph clustering approach is used to construct the frequent activity structures....
