Human Behavior Understanding (HBU) is a major challenge facing intelligent agents. Most approaches to solve this problem assume a recognition/detection context in which the agent/robot tries to match the perceived behavior to one or more predefined motion patterns (e.g. walking, running etc). A more challenging problem is discovering these motion patterns without apriori assumption about the motions in the data, their duration or their numbers. This paper proposes the utilization of a novel

The proposed system was evaluated on real records of full body motions and is shown in this paper to achieve high accuracy compared with a recently proposed motif discovery algorithm applied to the same dataset.
