Identifying uterine contractions with the aid of machine learning methods is necessary vis-á-vis their use in combination with fetal heart rates and other clinical data for the assessment of a fetus wellbeing. In this paper, we study contraction identification by processing noisy signals due to uterine activities. We propose a complete four-step method where we address the imbalanced classification problem with an ensemble Gaussian process classifier, where the Gaussian process latent variable model is used as a decision-maker. The results of both simulation and real data show promising performance compared to existing methods.
