Description

Recently, the ICT field has seen a shift from machine-centered focuses to human and user knowledge-based approaches. However, as priorities shift, questions arise on how to detect and monitor users’ behavior.

Human Behavior Recognition Technologies: Intelligent Applications for Monitoring and Security takes an insightful look into the applications and dependability of behavior detection. In addition, this comprehensive publication looks into the social, ethical, and legal implications of these areas.   Researchers and practitioners interested in the computational aspects of behavior monitoring as well as the ethical and legal implications will find this reference source beneficial.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Behavior Interpretation
  • Behavior Management
  • Human Aspects of Technology
  • IT Research and Theory
  • IT Security and Ethics
  • Web Technologies

Reviews and Testimonials

In this reference intended for researchers and practitioners, editors Guesgen and Marsland (Massey U., New Zealand) and 36 contributors examine applications and reliability of human behavior recognition technologies as well as social, legal, and ethical considerations. A sampling of specific topics addressed includes: a logic-based approach to activity recognition, ontology-based real-time behavior interpretation, tracking systems for multiple smart home residents, sensors for smart homes, monitoring social life and interactions, from streams of observation to knowledge-level productive predictions, and motion and location-based online human daily activity recognition.
