USER VERIFICATION FROM WALKING ACTIVITY - First Steps towards a Personal Verification System

Pierluigi Casale, Oriol Pujol, Petia Radeva

Abstract

In this work, first encouraging results in user verification by walking activity using a wearable device are reported. A discriminative machine learning pipeline is proposed for user verification. A general walking classifier based on AdaBoost is used for personalization adding data related to the verified users. An ensemble of One-Class classifiers is created for user verification. This novel technique proves to achieve very high performances from both classification accuracy and computational cost point of view. Results obtained shows that users can be verified with high confidence, with very high value of performance metrics.
