Presentation / Conference
SANI, S., WIRATUNGA, N., MASSIE, S. and COOPER, K. 2018. Study of similarity metrics for matching network-based personalised human activity recognition. In Minor, M. (ed.) Workshop proceedings for the 26th International conference on case-based reasoning (ICCBR 2018), 9-12 July 2018, Stockholm, Sweden, pages 91-95. Available from: http://iccbr18.com/wp-content/uploads/ICCBR-2018-V3.pdf#page=91

Personalised Human Activity Recognition (HAR) models trained using data from the target user (subject-dependent) have been shown to be superior to non personalised models that are trained on data from a general population (subject-independent). Howev... Read More about Study of similarity metrics for matching network-based personalised human activity recognition..
