Activity Learning: Discovering, Recognizing, and Predicting Human Behavior from Sensor Data.pdf
This book provides a comprehensive description of activity learning with techniques, details on existing algorithms, and case studies of technique applications to sensor datasets. Each chapter is constructed to provide practical, step by step information on how to analyze and process sensor data. Discusses potential real-world complications and provides step-by-step methods to manage or offset them Includes case studies, coded examples, and data sets for the reader's use An online companion site enables readers to experiment with the techniques described in the book, and to adapt or enhance the techniques for their own use
