The present paper proposes the application of decision trees to model activities of daily living in a multi-resident context. An extension of ID5R, called E-ID5R, is proposed. It augments the leaf nodes and allows such nodes to be multi-labeled. E-ID5R induces a decision tree incrementally to accommodate new instances and new activities as they become available over time. To evaluate the proposed algorithm, the ARAS dataset which is a real-world multi-resident dataset stemming from two houses is used. E-ID5R performs differently on activities of both houses. © 2014 Springer International Publishing Switzerland.
