Nevertheless, Gaussian mixture models are well-known to be highly intolerant to the presence of outliers within the fitting sets used for their estimation. Finite Student's-t mixture models have recently emerged as a heaviertailed, robust alternative to Gaussian mixture models, overcoming these hurdles. To exploit those merits of Student's-t mixture models, we introduce in this paper a novel hidden Markov chain model where the hidden state distributions are considered to be finite mixtures of multivariate Student's-t densities and we derive an algorithm for the model parameters estimation under a maximum likelihood framework. We apply this novel approach in automatic gesture recognition and we show that our model provides a substantial improvement in data representation performance and computational efficiency over the standard Gaussian model||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7248||ISBN:||978-1-4244-1483-3 (print)||ISSN:||978-1-4244-1484-0 (online)||DOI:||10.1109/ICASSP.2008.4518015||Rights:||© 2008 IEEE||Type:||Book Chapter|
