Research topic | Video analytics for human behavior understanding 

Video analytics enables us to measure objectively the behavior of humans by recognizing their everyday activities, their emotion, eating habits and lifestyle. Human behavior can be modeled by learning from a large quantity of data from a variety of sensors to improve and optimize, for instance, the quality of life of people suffering from behavior disorders.
