According to a recent press release, “Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. and Kumamoto University today announced the development of technology to easily create the training data necessary to apply AI to time-series data, such as those from accelerometers and gyroscopic sensors.Time-series data obtained from sensors does not include anything other than every-changing numerical data. Therefore, in order to create training data for use in machine learning, it was necessary to manually attach finely detailed labels to the data in accordance to its changing values, indicating what was done and when at each point where the numerical values changed. For this reason, huge numbers of man-hours were required, and the use of AI with time-series data had seen limited progress.”
The release goes on, “Now, Fujitsu Laboratories and Kumamoto University have enabled the automatic creation of highly accurate training data with appropriate labels for each action, just by manually attaching a single label to each longer time period, even if they include multiple actions, indicating the major action in that time period according to human judgement. Because this significantly reduces the number of man-hours required, this technology will accelerate the use of AI with time-series data. The new development is expected to enable easier installation of services such as fall detection, operational functionality checks, and abnormality detection for machines, in smartphones and various other devices.”
