Researchers from University of Jinan Report New Studies and Findings in the Area of Algorithms (A genetic algorithm approach to human motion capture data segmentation)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Mathematics -- Researchers detail new data in Algorithms. According to news reporting originating in Shandong, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "In this paper, we propose a novel genetic algorithm approach to human motion capture (MoCap) data segmentation."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Jinan, "For a given MoCap sequence, it constructs a symbolic representation through unsupervised sparse learning, detects the candidate segmenting points to the sequence, models the selection/deselection of each candidate with a gene, and employs the genetic algorithm to find the optimal solution."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "To the best of our knowledge, we for the first time introduce the genetic algorithm and the sparse learning technique to the problem of MoCap data segmentation, leading to excellent segmentation performance as experimentally demonstrated."
