Prashant Pandey, Prathosh AP, Manu Kohli, Josh Pritchard
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Our proposed method is found to improve the performance of the state-of-the-art multi-class human action recognition models in-spite of supervision with scarce data.  ...  The proposed method is evaluated on two skill assessment autism datasets, SSBD and a real world Autism dataset comprising 37 children of different ages and ethnicity who are diagnosed with autism.  ...  This procedure thus increases the quantity and variety of the training data for P t θ and we call it as Guided Weak Supervision (GWS).  ...
