Classification of human actions
It is important for the decomposition of human industrial activities to recognize and classify elementary gestures (a possible decomposition for measuring difficulty is described in section 8.3 or classical methods in industry such as MTM Methods Time Measurement). Due to the temporal nature of the signals, it is necessary to use a type of deep networks that manage this type of data. Recursive networks are therefore used where past observations influence the current prediction. Among recent deep network research, the so-called long-short term memory (LSTM) cells, represented here, seem well adapted. Unlike a simple recursive network where only data from the previous time is used for a new prediction, an LSTM cell can store data over a much longer period of time. With each prediction, the forget gate can decide to authorize the use or forget a previously observed data. We tested our algorithms on a classic benchmark (NTU RGB+D). In order to obtain interesting recognition rates, we showed that it was necessary to use the filters explained in section 7.3 to determinate the number of learning movements. Other less data-intensive methods are to be tested.
