This e-book constitutes the refereed complaints of the sixth overseas Workshop on Ambient Assisted dwelling, IWAAL 2014, held in Belfast, united kingdom, in December 2014. The forty two complete papers awarded with 12 papers of the workshop guess 2014 and 10 papers of a distinct consultation HTA have been rigorously reviewed and chosen from a number of submissions. the point of interest of the papers is on following themes: ADL detection, popularity, class; behavioural adjustments, training and schooling; AAL layout and technical evaluate; expression, temper and speech reputation; well-being tracking, danger prediction and overview; localization; and person personal tastes, usability, AAL reputation and adoption.

We adopt a similar idea, however each kernel in our framework corresponds to a particular camera view. The intuition behind this is that the optimal combination of parameters enables a weighted sum of all the camera views while ensuring the optimality of the kernel parameters. Such a system should be advantageous over methods merely using weighted sum of classification scores. We therefore hypothesise that it should outperform the methods using the simple fusion techniques, due to the inherited advantage of MKL algorithms for coping with the heterogeneous nature of multiple camera views.

4 Results and Analysis In this section, we firstly provide an internal comparison among the methods described in Section 3, while using the STIP descriptor and BoW or the IDT descriptor and BoW. This is mainly to test whether the MKL method is indeed advantageous over the other methods for multi-view action recognition. We then give an external comparison between our proposed framework and the state-of-the-art methods applied to the IXMAS dataset in the literature under similar experimental conditions.
