Applying Data Mining Techniques on Continuous Sensed Data: For daily living activity recognition
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Nowadays, with the rapid development of the Internet of Things, the applicationfield of wearable sensors has been continuously expanded and extended, especiallyin the areas of remote electronic medical treatment, smart homes ect. Human dailyactivities recognition based on the sensing data is one of the challenges. With avariety of data mining techniques, the activities can be automatically recognized. Butdue to the diversity and the complexity of the sensor data, not every kind of datamining technique can performed very easily, until after a systematic analysis andimprovement. In this thesis, several data mining techniques were involved in theanalysis of a continuous sensing dataset in order to achieve the objective of humandaily activities recognition. This work studied several data mining techniques andfocuses on three of them; Decision Tree, Naive Bayes and neural network, analyzedand compared these techniques according to the classification results. The paper alsoproposed some improvements to the data mining techniques according to thespecific dataset. The comparison of the three classification results showed that eachclassifier has its own limitations and advantages. The proposed idea of combing theDecision Tree model with the neural network model significantly increased theclassification accuracy in this experiment.
