Self-supervised Deep Learning for Reading Activity Classification

12/07/2020 ∙ by Md. Rabiul Islam, et al. ∙ 0

Reading analysis can give important information about a user's confidence and habits and can be used to construct feedback to improve a user's reading behavior. A lack of labeled data inhibits the effective application of fully-supervised Deep Learning (DL) for automatic reading analysis. In this paper, we propose a self-supervised DL method for reading analysis and evaluate it on two classification tasks. We first evaluate the proposed self-supervised DL method on a four-class classification task on reading detection using electrooculography (EOG) glasses datasets, followed by an evaluation of a two-class classification task of confidence estimation on answers of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) using eye-tracking datasets. Fully-supervised DL and support vector machines (SVMs) are used to compare the performance of the proposed self-supervised DL method. The results show that the proposed self-supervised DL method is superior to the fully-supervised DL and SVM for both tasks, especially when training data is scarce. This result indicates that the proposed self-supervised DL method is the superior choice for reading analysis tasks. The results of this study are important for informing the design and implementation of automatic reading analysis platforms.
