Clustering Method for Predicting Actions of a Human Being at Different Locations

Navitha Varghese, G. Naveen Sundar


Human behavior can be characterized by a set of sequential action patterns. As such, there can be a causal relationship among actions. When these actions take place in uncertain conditions, it is difficult to predict the next action based on the observed actions. Thus, it would be a challenging task to establish some causal relationships among the sequential actions under observation .Some techniques are used for labeling actions which also deals with predicting actions. Further, we want to point out potential pitfalls as well as challenging issues of different techniques. We believe that the results of this evaluation will help for building up an autonomous system.
