Welcome to ABC2024

Human Activity Recognition has been researched in thousands of papers so far, with mobile / environmental sensors in ubiquitous / pervasive domains, and with cameras in vision domains. As well, Human Behavior Analysis is also explored for long-term health care, rehabilitation, emotion recognition, human interaction, and so on.

However, many research challenges remain for realistic settings, such as complex and ambiguous activities / behavior, optimal sensor combinations, (deep) machine learning, data collection, platform systems, and killer applications.

In this conference, we comprehend such research domains as ABC: Activity and Behavior Computing, and provide an open and a confluent place for discussing various aspects and the future of the ABC.

Day 0 : Domestic Service Robot Hands-on

Place: Kyutech Wakamatsu Campus

Domestic Service Robots (DSRs) are developed to support our daily lives: they tidy up the room, welcome guests, and serve dishes. In this hands-on, we brainstorm new functions required for DSRs, and collect data using TOYOTA HSR, with the support of a world-leading robot development team. The effectiveness of the functions and feasibility of solutions will be evaluated. Collected data can be utilized for future robot task development of yours.

  • Application: Apr 12, 2024
  • Acceptance: Apr 19, 2024
  • Hands-on: May 28, 2024 (Day 0)
