  • Accelerometer-Based Body Sensor Network (BSN) for Medical Diagnosis Assessment and Training

    Body sensor network (BSN) can provide real-time remote monitoring of the health situation of a particular person. In operation, wearable, miniaturized, and low-power consumption sensors are attached on or implanted in human body for collecting biological signals. In this chapter, the use of accelerometers for BSN for monitoring the body motions is discussed. Recent advances in the computation of motion identification are described including tilting angle, muscle strength, and gait performance and specific computing algorithms, different interpretations of the signal from accelerometers can be formulated. Moreover, several medical diagnosis assessment and training applications are introduced to demonstrate the capability of an accelerometer-based BSN. Furthermore, the concept of using biped humanoid robots to develop the BSN simulation system is discussed. Finally, the BSN simulation system could generate helpful BSN information for evaluating the algorithms' performance in laboratories before the BSN systems are deployed to the human's body.

  • Recognition of Humans and Their Activities Using Video

    The recognition of humans and their activities from video sequences is currently a very active area of research because of its applications in video surveillance, design of realistic entertainment systems, multimedia communications, and medical diagnosis. In this lecture, we discuss the use of face and gait signatures for human identification and recognition of human activities from video sequences. We survey existing work and describe some of the more well-known methods in these areas. We also describe our own research and outline future possibilities. In the area of face recognition, we start with the traditional methods for image-based analysis and then describe some of the more recent developments related to the use of video sequences, 3D models, and techniques for representing variations of illumination. We note that the main challenge facing researchers in this area is the development of recognition strategies that are robust to changes due to pose, illumination, disguise, and aging. Gait recognition is a more recent area of research in video understanding, although it has been studied for a long time in psychophysics and kinesiology. The goal for video scientists working in this area is to automatically extract the parameters for representation of human gait. We describe some of the techniques that have been developed for this purpose, most of which are appearance based. We also highlight the challenges involved in dealing with changes in viewpoint and propose methods based on image synthesis, visual hull, and 3D models. In the domain of human activity recognition, we present an extensive survey of various methods that have been developed in different disciplines like artificial intelligence, image processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision. We then outline our method for modeling complex activities using 2D and 3D deformable shape theory. The wide application of automatic human identification and activity recognition methods will require the fusion of different modalities like face and gait, dealing with the problems of pose and illumination variations, and accurate computation of 3D models. The last chapter of this lecture deals with these areas of future research.

  • The Animat and the Physician

    Animat research has already produced interesting concepts and algorithms. In this paper, we analyze how this research can be applied to human intelligence understanding and to reproducing of some expert behaviors. To support these ideas, we experiment with an improvement of Boole, a Genetic Based Learning algorithm from animat research, in a medical domain of expertise. We experimentally demonstrate that our system obtains good results on a well known realistic medical diagnosis task, and we analyze its potential ability to solve more complicated problems.
