User identification is an important task for a variety of purposes such as authentication or providing personalized advice for improving user experience. In this paper, we propose a method for identifying a user who is holding a smartphone out of previously given target users from acceleration data obtained from the accelerometer in the smartphone using a deep neural network. This proposed method preliminary creates the model from the acceleration data of each user while walking in its training phase. This method identifies the user from acceleration data for identification based on this model in the classification phase. We evaluated the proposed method with the acceleration obtained from the actual eight and twelve users in two aspects, which were identifications including no-decision choice and that without no-decision choice. Our evaluation showed that the proposed method achieved accuracies higher than 95% for two- to five-class identification without no-decision. The proposed method identified the user with no or little false positive in evaluations with “no-decision.”
