Welcome to ARAS

Welcome to the homepage of the Activity Recognition and Ambient Sensing group (ARAS) at the Department of computer engineering of Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey. We use machine learning techniques to recognize human activities from ambient sensors. You can find an overview of our projects, publications and members of our group. Furthermore, we provide many useful information for people working in the activity recognition and ambient sensing field such as datasets, a list of groups active in this field and a list of relevant conferences. Feel free to contact us for questions or suggestions.
