About NIFTi
NIFTi is about human-robot cooperation. About teams of robots and humans doing tasks together, interacting together to try and reach a shared goal. NIFTi looks at how the robot could bear the human in mind. Literally. When determining what to do or say next in human-robot interaction; when, and how. NIFTi puts the human factor into cognitive robots, and human-robot team interaction in particular.   Each year, NIFTi evaluates its systems together with several USAR organizations. Rescue personnel teams up with NIFTi robots to carry out realistic missions, in real-life training areas.

Discriminative Sequence Back-Constrained GP-LVM for MOCAP Based Action Recognition

In: Proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods.

In this paper we address the problem of human action recognition within Motion Capture sequences. We introduce a method based on Gaussian Process Latent Variable Models and Alignment Kernels. We build a new discriminative latent variable model with back-constraints induced by the similarity of the original sequences. We compare the proposed method with a standard sequence classification method based on Dynamic Time Warping and with the recently introduced V-GPDS model which is able to model highly dimensional dynamical systems. The proposed methodology exhibits high performance even for datasets that have not been manually pre-processed while it further allows fast inference by exploiting the back constraints.
