The need to adhere to recommended physical activity guidelines for a variety of chronic disorders calls for high precision Human Activity Recognition (HAR) systems. In the SelfBACK system, HAR is used to monitor activity types and intensities to enable self-management of low back pain (LBP). HAR is typically modelled as a classification task where sensor data associated with activity labels are used to train a classifier to predict future occurrences of those activities. An important consideration in HAR is whether to use training data from a general population (subject-independent), or personalised training data from the target user (subject-dependent). Previous evaluations have shown that using personalised data results in more accurate predictions. However, from a practical perspective, collecting sufficient training data from the end user may not be feasible. This has made using subject-independent data by far the more common approach in commercial HAR systems. In this paper, we introduce a novel approach which uses nearest neighbour similarity to identify examples from a subject-independent training set that are most similar to sample data obtained from the target user and uses these examples to generate a personalised model for the user. This nearest neighbour sampling approach enables us to avoid much of the practical limitations associated with training a classifier exclusively with user data, while still achieving the benefit of personalisation. Evaluations show our approach to significantly out perform a general subject-independent model by up to 5%.
