Highlights of the year

Pulsar is a Project team created in January 2008 in the continuation of the Orion project. François Brémond has taken the lead of the Pulsar team since September 2009 and Monique Thonnat, the former leader, has taken responsibilities at INRIA at the national level. Indeed, she is now both deputy scientific director at INRIA and researcher in Pulsar team. We have a new software platform called SUP (Scene Understanding Platform) for activity recognition based on sound software engineering paradigms. We have also continued original work on learning techniques such as data mining in large multimedia database. For instance, we have been able to learn the behavior profile of nine elderly people living in the Ger'home laboratory by processing more than 9 x 4 hours of video and sensor (e.g pressure and contact sensors) recordings. We have also learned gesture descriptors to recognize actions such as walking and jumping.
