Predictive modeling aims at constructing models that predict a target property of an object based on its descriptions. In digital human modeling, it can be applied to predicting human body shape from images, measurements, or descriptive features. While images and measurements can be converted to numerical values, it is difficult to assign numerical values to descriptive features and therefore regression based methods cannot be applied. In this work, we propose to use Predictive Clustering Trees (PCT) to predict human body shapes from demographic information. We build PCTs using a dataset of demographic attributes and body shape descriptors. We demonstrate empirically that the PCT-based method has similar predicting power as the numerical approaches using body measurements. The PCTs also reveal interesting structures of the training dataset and provide interpretations of the body shape variations from the perspective of the demographic attributes.
