Title of the Talk: Human Gait Analysis and its Applications
Presenter: Yasushi Yagi, Osaka University, Japan
Abstract: Everyone's walking style is unique, human gait is a prime candidate for person authentication tasks. Our gait analysis technologies are now being used in real criminal investigations. We have constructed a large-scale gait database, and proposed several methods of gait analysis. The appearances of gait patterns are influenced by changes in viewpoint, walking direction, speed, clothes, and shoes. To overcome these problems, we have proposed several approaches using a part-based method, an appearance-based view transformation model, a periodic temporal super resolution method, a manifold-based method and score-level fusion. We show the efficiency of our approaches by evaluating them with our large gait database. Furthermore, in this talk, I briefly introduce some studies on its medical applications.
